Volunteer as Individual

Volunteering with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Mercer County provides our youth with new experiences and skills as you serve as a role model to youth and positively impact our communities!

Individuals serve in various capacities based on Club needs, volunteer interest, and availability. For example, volunteers may support youth with homework, assist in program areas with the daily activity, coach, or help with administrative tasks, to list just a few.

All individuals interested in volunteering must be at least 18 years of age, and we ask that you commit to at least one hour per week for 12 weeks.

Individuals also must complete the online volunteer orientation, review the volunteer handbook, and complete an online application and the background check form.

    School Supply/Backpack Drive

    Our kids need supplies to go back to learning, and we welcome donations year-round to support our students at school and at the Club after school. The best time to donate would be from June through August/September. A back-to-school supply drive helps our kids come prepared to learn and lessens the financial burden on families.

    You can provide us with just supplies, backpacks, or stuff the backpacks with supplies for specific grade levels. The flyer (click here) describes the types of supplies needed for various grade levels. To inquire about setting up a School Supply drive, email Ashley Nwankwo at anwankwo@bgcmercer.org
