Junior Volunteer Opportunities

The Junior Volunteer Program is a comprehensive small-group program that assists members ages 12-18 (and have attended 7th grade) in exploring a career in youth or human services, particularly Boys & Girls Club work. Through hands-on experiences with helping others in the Club and community, field trips to other service organizations and one-on-one guidance from Club staff, youth prepare for a possible future role as a human services professional or volunteer leader in their community.
