VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Volunteer opportunities at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Albany are plentiful and rewarding! By donating your time and influence, you will be serving as a positive role model and presenting a positive influence to our members. Within our program there are many opportunities that suit the talents and desires of all potential volunteers.

PROGRAM VOLUNTEER

Does the Club offer a program that interests you and would allow you to showcase and share your talents? Become a Program Volunteer and commit yourself to supporting and enhancing one of our weekly programs by working in an area with a Lead Staff.

TUTORING

Power Hour and Power Surge, our after school homework help programs for 1st-5th graders and 6th-12th graders, are always in need of volunteers to help members with their homework . For those members in need of extra or more personalized educational assistance, one-on one tutoring opportunities exist. Tutors are asked to commit a minimum of one hour per week for a full school year to meet with a member at a set time determined by the tutor, the member’s guardian and the Club member.

MENTORING

Many of our members are in need of positive role models and would benefit greatly from the individual attention of a caring adult. A mentor is paired with a club member to meet on a weekly basis. We ask mentors to make a minimum time commitment of one hour per week for a full school year. A set appointment time will be agreed upon by the mentor, the member’s guardian, and the Club member. Activities during the mentoring session will differ upon both the member and the mentor. Anything that offers positive reinforcement to the member and signals to them that they have the respect and admiration of an accomplished adult will do wonders for the member.

SPECIAL INTEREST

Have an idea for a new program not offered by the Club? Become a Special Interest Volunteer and design and run a program of your very own. All program ideas should be submitted to the Program Director or Volunteer Coordinator, who will assist you in the development of your program.

COACHING

Do you love sports? The Boys & Girls Clubs run both non-competitive skills-based basketball and volleyball leagues for club members. The Leagues are based on sportsmanship and development and require a ten-week commitment from volunteer coaches.
