Change the lives of our youth by volunteering at one of our 8 Club locations. 

Our Club kids and teens need caring adults to help them develop their character and leadership skills, learn how to live healthy lifestyles, find the path to a fulfilling career, and to learn the professional skills they need to succeed in life.


Please email Hailey Johnson at to be added to our volunteer email list, schedule a donation drop-off at BGCCI, or ask any questions you might have.
