“Service is the rent we pay for the space we occupy on earth.”
We believe that volunteers play a valuable role in transforming the lives of our Club members. As little as one hour per week can make a positive impact on a childs life. Each Club offers opportunities to work directly with youth as mentors, tutors, sports referees and coaches, and teachers of games such as chess, pool, scrabble-or possibly ballroom dancing. If you have a special talent youd like to share, just let us know. The time of greatest need for volunteers is during the middle-to-late afternoon hours during the school year.
We also welcome corporations and other organizations seeking one day, project-based volunteer opportunities. Short-term projects and single event opportunities do occasionally arise. So, if you cant make a long-term commitment, you may still be able to get involved!
Boys & Girls Clubs of Harford County are very serious about our responsibility for the youth in our care. We are proud of our excellent reputation as a safe haven for youth. Therefore, all volunteers must fill out an application, pass a background check, and read the volunteer handbook prior to being oriented by the Branch Director at the location where they wish to serve.
The application and background check can be downloaded Below , then either fax the application in as directed or drop it off at the Club where you wish to serve.
