Just some of the ways you can volunteer…
Come share your favorite books and read to Kindergarten and first graders here at our Club. Children really love to be read too and at this age can engage in this activity for up to a half hour! Ideally at 5 after they’ve had their dinner, any day of the week.
The moment our kids get off the bus they are invited into our Learning Centers to receive help with their homework. Our kids need help with all subjects: math, science, English, history, and even English as a Second Language. If you enjoy working with children and want to help shape their future through education, feel free to volunteer your time by assisting with Homework Help. Our kids will be so thankful to have your help and support as they learn the foundation for the rest of their education.
Membership Services & Administrative Support Internship
Are you good at multi-tasking and able to greet kids, sign them in to the computer and answer questions? That is how busy our front desk gets throughout the day. Or maybe you like to work on tedious tasks or projects, that help us behind the scenes. If so we would love for you to join us. We can use volunteers anytime during the hours of 9am -7pm, Monday through Friday. We would ask that you are able to commit to at least one day a week for up to 3 hours.
Marketing & Media Internship
The intern position will manage such platforms such as Facebook, Remind App, and Instagram to create marketing and messaging effectively to families and members of the club. Creating digital media for a variety of different audiences to promote the Club, appeal to fundraising audiences and to be used as informational and in both English and Spanish. Measuring data and driving interactiveness and two way communication of platforms.
Grenville Baker Boys & Girls Club is proud to offer a wide variety of athletic programs to our members throughout the school year. Three of these programs, Soccer, Basketball, and Baseball/Softball, see our members form teams and compete against each other in a structured league. These programs are always looking for coaches to take charge of a team and teach our kids the fundamentals of the sport while also learning and practicing good sportsmanship.
Every Friday we are visited by the Pizza Guy and our members enjoy some delicious hot pizza. We are always looking for volunteers to help serve our members their slices during this busy time. You’ll get to meet dozens of outstanding kids and put smiles on their faces as you put slices on their plates.
Field Clean Ups
Whether it is baseball or soccer, kickball or tug’o’war, we play lots of games on our fields! We like to keep our fields in the best condition possible so that our kids can have the best outdoor experience possible. Each Spring we choose one Sunday to dedicate to field clean up, getting our field and baseball diamonds ready for the upcoming baseball season and summer of fun activities. Whether you want to help us lay new clay on the baseball diamonds or simply rake up branches and leaves around the field, we could use your help!
Day For Kids
Held on a Saturday every September, Day for Kids is a carnival open to all to come and enjoy a day of fun, games, food, and play! Day for Kids is always such a success thanks to the help of our volunteers and the generous support of local businesses who provide prizes, food, and drinks for our attendees.
Every November the Club hosts a Thanksgiving Dinner open to all members of the community. Anyone can enjoy a Thanksgiving Dinner with all the fixings in the company of good friends. Our Thanksgiving Dinner would not be possible without the amazing food provided by so many local businesses and the volunteers who take time to help prepare and serve the food to our dinner guests.
The Club loves to get into the holiday spirit and we celebrate all of the holidays at our annual Holiday Party. Our upstairs gym transforms into a winter wonderland full of toys, desserts, drinks, and cheer! If you are filled with the holiday spirit and would like to help with our party, there are many opportunities to help such as decorating, serving, clean up, and photography.
Junior Games Room
The Junior Games Room is the heart of Grenville Baker Boys & Girls Club and is always beating strong. At almost any time we have over a hundred kids in our Junior Games Room taking part in a variety of activities. If you would like to help us run these activities, whether it be a Bumper Pool Tournament, a Lego Building Contest, or an activity of your own design, we welcome your time and enthusiasm.
If there is one thing our kids love more than reading, it is having stories read to them by readers who are passionate about the material. Our Education Department is always looking for anyone who would like to come in and engage our kids by reading one of their favorite stories. Any story appropriate for ages 6 – 10 is welcome!
Be part of a GREAT opportunity to be involved with your local Club!
