Volunteer

At the Boys & Girls Clubs of Martin County, we regard volunteering and mentoring as a critical step in forging a 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 all ages. One volunteer reading tutor, Shirley Mauer, has been 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, Partner & Volunteer Director, at 772.545.1255. You may also email Dianne.

To ensure the safety of our Club Members and in accordance with State laws, all volunteers will be fingerprinted so that a background check can be completed. This is done at no expense to the volunteer. For more information on this process please contact Dianne Young.   
  • Once approved for volunteering, you will be referred to the Club and Program as per your request on the Volunteer Application and be invited to a required orientation for all new volunteers. (See upcoming dates.)
     
  • Club staff will train you on Volunteer Policies and Procedures and work with you to develop a plan for your volunteer experience.
Questions? Please call Dianne Young at 772.545.1255. 

Thank you for your interest in providing your time and talents to help us fulfill our mission to enable all young people to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
