Volunteer Opportunities

Kids Feeding Kids

Every day, Club members enjoy a healthy meal together. Meals include foods from at least two major food groups and are served by trained snack helpers. The East Side, Southside Village, Al Lenzmeier West Side, Mt. Airy, and Jerry Gamble Club locations provide full meals through the Kids Feeding Kids program. 

As a volunteer, you can help facilitate and manage the Kids Feeding Kids program. Help serve food, monitor the cafeteria, or use your cooking skills to help prepare meals! 

Literacy Program

Our Literacy program takes place from 4-6 p.m. Monday through Thursday.  All members K-3 are involved in literacy stations and/or literacy lessons during these times. Our area of need is with helping our Education Director run literacy stations during that time. Each program area has stations set up that focus on phonological awareness (letter/sounds/alphabet recognition), vocabulary/sight words, and reading/comprehension/fluency.  Education Directors run these stations in hands-on multi-sensory ways that are engaging. 

We need volunteers to run literacy stations as these members are rotated through. As we group our members based on assessment data, we may also need volunteers that are interested in doing one-on-one tutoring in reading (this could be a more flexible time commitment).  We would love to have you as a part of our literacy team!

Sports & Gym

Help youth achieve and maintain fitness, acquire a broad range of skills, and develop a sense of teamwork, cooperation, and fairness that leads to the development of healthy lifestyle patterns.

Coach volunteers are needed for winter basketball and spring/summer softball and baseball, along with seasonal volleyball coaches.

STARS

If you are especially enthusiastic about working with younger members, ages 5-9, volunteer to work with our STARS program. Assist our youngest members with art and music activities, reading, games, and more! Volunteering in our STARS program is a rewarding way to serve the youngest members of your community on their journey to become responsible, caring young adults.

Special Skills

Do you have a special skill that would be useful to our Clubs or our members? Do you want to use that skill to enrich the lives of young people throughout the Twin Cities? You can do just that with the Boys & Girls Clubs! Lead or assist with art classes, computer skills workshops, music studio performances and more! More comprehensive environmental education and outdoor recreational programming is offered at our Voyageur Environmental Center.
