Volunteer

At the Boys & Girls Clubs of Martin County, we regard volunteering and mentoring as a critical step in forging this pathway to a child’s health and prosperity.


Volunteer opportunities are available in several programmatic areas, including:

  • Arts: music, arts & crafts, theatre, photography, dance
  • Academics: tutoring in reading, math, money management, computer skills
  • Health & Wellness: nutrition and health, exercise, drug education, organic gardening
  • Recreation: chess, board games, sewing, cooking
  • Sports: football, tennis, golf, cheerleading, swimming

In addition, our administrative staff seeks support with general office and clerical tasks (filing, telephone, data entry, and mailing).

Volunteers may serve Monday through Friday between the hours of 9 am to 6 pm.

BGCMC’s volunteers are of all ages, from 16 to 85, with one volunteer reading tutor, Shirley Mauer, coming to the Cole-Clark branch in Hobe Sound every week for the past 11 years. An annual volunteer recognition ceremony is held each spring at BGCMC.

For more information on volunteering at BGCMC, please call Dianne Young, our friendly Volunteer Coordinator, at 772.545.1255. You can also email Dianne.

To ensure the safety of our Club Members and in accordance with State laws, we require all volunteers to be fingerprinted.  You may be fingerprinted at our administrative offices in Hobe Sound or at the Martin County Sheriff's Office.
