Volunteer Opportunities

You can become part of the Club experience by investing time with Club members. Regular volunteers work with one or more of our core program areas and provide a positive influence and safe environment by committing two or more hours at the same time each week. Speaking with a staff member is a great way to decide what kind of Club service is right for you. There is never a wrong time to enhance the character of youth in Grand Rapids.
