Education

It is often difficult for parents to have the time to assist their child with homework. Volunteering with homework assistance, tutoring, storytelling, word processing, web design, Internet surfing or tech support is a vital way to provide youth the attention they deserve. Adult tutors are also needed to meet with youth to help build their skills in a focused area.

After-School Recreation

The Clubs offers a variety of programs that teach sportsmanship and skills to youth in activities ranging from billiards, board games, basketball and active games to gardening. One-on-one interaction between youth and responsible, caring adults is an essential building block for healthy development. For the safety of our members, individuals who wish to volunteer on a regular basis must pass a background check and attend an orientation session.
