VolunteerThank you for your interest in volunteering with Boys & Girls Clubs of Utah County!
Volunteers Make it Happen
Volunteers are a big part of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Utah County. Our clubs need all the skills and talents you as the volunteer can offer us. We want to provide a fun environment where you can teach your skills to our club members and create lasting experiences.
Individuals, families, and groups of all sizes are welcome to volunteer at the Clubs. In addition, we always encourage potential volunteers to suggest games and activities that are fun, exciting, and safe for Club members. If you are interested in sharing your activity with the Club, please email the Volunteer Coordinator.
Can You Make it Happen?
- Can you commit to at least one hour a week?
- Can you commit to a minimum of 3 months of service?
- Can you commit to being involved and having fun with the kids?
These commitments are very important to us. We need volunteers who will be with us for at least three months and give the kids the stability and familiarity they need.
If you feel you can commit to this than we would love to have you join our volunteer team.
What our volunteers love best!
“The kids. The kids are hilarious! There’s something about being little and there’s no filter. Sometimes they just say what they’re thinking and it’s hilarious.”
“Just being able to be involved and feel like you’re getting to make a difference and change their lives for the better.”
“I actually really just love spending time with the kids. They’re always fun, they’re always laughing, always having a good time and they’re always willing to involve volunteers in that.”
“The interactions you have with the children. Seeing them learn and interact with each other, and helping them grow a love of learning.”
“Walking in the door and at the beginning now that I know all these kids and they’re all screaming my name and they want to give you a hug and they’re all excited because you showed up.”
“Working with the kids. They’re just huge balls of energy. They want your attention and they love working with the volunteers, probably more than being with their peers, so it’s really fun because they just want to be with you.”
STEM Fest Volunteers
March 30, 2015
March 23-27 will go down in history as the week some 120 volunteers mobilized to make the first-ever Utah STEM Fest a success. Our expectations were exceeded as students, teachers, professionals, parents, and children arrived at UVU’s UCCU Events Center ready to make the event go off without a hitch. Altogether, volunteers logged nearly 900 hours! Because of these volunteers, we know that subsequent STEM Fest’s will continue to reach out to those youth who need us the most.
For those of you who weren’t able to attend, we encourage you to reach out to Boys & Girls Clubs of Utah County and give some of your time to our Club members. We wouldn’t be able to serve so many kids without you!
Did you know that some of our sites operate even when school is out? Research shows that all youth experience learning losses over the summer when they are not properly engaged. For youth from low-income families, these losses are especially severe, widening the learning gap between these students and their middle-class peers. (Boys & Girls Clubs of America, 2014)
By spending time with our community’s youth during summer vacation, you will help reduce summer learning loss and provide crucial services to the youth who need us the most.
Thank You for being THAT person!
