Become a Volunteer!

Come share your skills at the Club: we have needs that fit a huge variety of interests, including Academic Tutoring, Sports and Recreation, Arts, Music and Dance, Programming and Robotics, Chess, and Woodworking, as well as needs for help in Administration, Events, and Facilities.

You can volunteer at our Downtown Clubhouse, Live Oak Clubhouse, or Joe & Linda Aliberti Clubhouse (Scotts Valley and San Lorenzo Valley). You can find a more detailed description of our daily after school program for each Clubhouse here.

All direct work/volunteerism with Club members takes place Monday – Friday during after school hours, or all day (7:30 am-6:00 pm) during the summer.

If you are only available on weekends, we do have events on weekends and always can use the help of generous volunteers. To see a list of upcoming events please click here. Note: Kids are usually not present at these events as they are primarily fundraisers. If you’d like to volunteer with Club members its only possible during our afterschool program hours.

We can help with recording your Community Service Hours for school, work, or agency requirements.

We also have great opportunities for corporate/group volunteer events:

  • Beautification projects, done-in-a-day, usually weekends, like our Spring Garden Restoration
  • Youth interaction activities, either on-going or one-offs.
  • Events help, like at our Golf Tournament or Children’s Craft Fair

If you are interested in volunteering, either individually or as a group, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@boysandgirlsclub.info or 831-423-3138 ext. 29.
