Leading the way
Dreams come true when you volunteer at Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City
Someone to listen. Someone to ask about their day, their hopes, their dreams. Someone to care. It sounds so simple, but every minute spent with a nurturing adult makes a lifetime of difference for a child or teen in need.
You can be that person when you become a Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City volunteer.
How to volunteer at Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City
There are so many ways that you can lend your talents:
Help in the classroom and while members work through the SMARTS and Positive Action program materials.
Help teens explore job opportunities through company tours and experiences following and observing experienced employees in desired fields.
Life Coach Mentoring
Spend a few hours a month building a one-on-one bond with a teen member, helping with homework, shooting hoops, or just talking about life.
Share your technical knowledge in one of our Clubs’ Makerspace Technology Labs and/or recording studios.
Support our major fundraising initiatives by volunteering at one or more events throughout the year, helping with registration, greeting guests, table support, and more.
RBI Coach and Sports Coaching
Invest in the lives of youth by coaching them in the value of teamwork, responsibility, good sportsmanship, and self-esteem.
Pick your favorite classroom subject and help kids work through their schoolwork.
We welcome individuals, groups and corporations ready to open their hearts and help our kids dream big.
