Become A Volunteer

Because together, we can give the youth of Baltimore a place to become

COVID-19 Update:
Our kids, our staff, and our volunteers’ safety is our number one priority. Because of this, we have decided it’s best to suspend all in person volunteer activity until further notice.  We cannot wait to have you in our Clubs and so appreciate your interest. Please feel free to fill out the interest form in the meantime. We will reach out as soon as in person volunteer activity resumes. 

At the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Baltimore, our volunteers are an essential element in our efforts to serve the young people who need us most. We are always actively recruiting positive, skilled and dedicated volunteers to strengthen our impact. We appreciate you!

It is evident that with committed volunteers, we at BGCMB can do great things to help every Club member reach their full potential and become a productive, caring, and responsible citizen. 

Volunteer Overview & Opportunities 

Virtual:

We are looking for groups to interact with our members virtually through this trying time. Want to teach a STEM lesson? Yoga Class? Basketball activities? Please reach out to Rosina Koehn for more details.

 

Individual Volunteers:

Join us to help our members with homework during Power Hour, help them stay active during Triple Play, or open their creative minds by leading an art project. We are looking for individuals who can volunteer 1 to 2 times a week for a minimum of 6 months.

Mentoring:

Join our Mentoring community supported by The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP). Mentoring has been shown to improve youth's self-esteem, behavior, and academic performance. We are looking for individuals who can commit to 1-3 hours/week for a minimum of 6 months. Please fill out the interest form below.

 

Group/Corporate Volunteers:

Volunteer groups provide support to our Clubhouses on either a one-time or recurring basis. Groups can choose to help with daily programs, beautification projects, and/or special events.
