Volunteer or Mentor
To ensure the health and safety of members and staff, we currently do not have any volunteer or mentor opportunities available. However, you can still complete an application online, which will be stored for future use once we can reopen our doors to visitors. Thank you for your understanding, and we can't wait to work with you in the future!
Volunteering at BGCAA
There are many different types of volunteers. Your skill set, interest and enthusiasm can easily be matched for a short or long term volunteer position. Whether you have specialized skills, love to be around kids, or want to help in the office, there are many opportunities within our Clubs to volunteer.
Many different programs are conducted each day at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Annapolis & Anne Arundel County. While specific experience is not necessary, we encourage college students to get involved in volunteering and can match your particular field of study to a respective program. Read more about our programs to see how you can be a pivotal part of the team.
Ask us how YOU can make a difference!
Join BGCAA's Mentoring Community and help change, or even save, the life of a child. The commitment is one hour a week during Club Hours (after school during the academic year or during the day in the summer). We ask that Mentors commit to the program for a minimum of three months.
BGCAA's Mentoring Program is supported by OJJDP ~ The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention
