The Ultimate Membership: Become a Volunteer!
The gift of volunteering is priceless. Nothing feels better than knowing you are making a difference in a young person’s life. When you volunteer, not only do you benefit, but more importantly, the children and youth benefit! We encourage YOU to help. Whether you are an individual or with a group, all hands and hearts are welcome. There are various opportunities to accommodate your busy schedule. You must be 16 years of age or older to volunteer.
Volunteers working with youth must complete a Boys & Girls Club volunteer application, a Social Development Record Check and a Vulnerable Sector Criminal Record Check. The background check is for your protection and for the protection of our members. Once the Province has cleared the requests, you can be placed into a rewarding volunteer position. The process takes approximately two weeks.
