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 application and consent to a background check. 

New volunteer opportunities arise frequently, so please let us know what your interested in.
