Thank you to all of our beloved volunteers! Without their hard work, none of our important mission would be possible. By volunteering, you are supporting the youth of our community in so many ways, seen and unseen.
The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Vergennes is always actively seeking out for positive skilled and committed volunteers. Our needs are always ongoing and looking to expand our volunteer roster. You can give time, donate money, or even help to spread the word! It all makes a difference!
If you are interested in volunteering or have any questions, please feel free to get in contact with Steven at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (802) 870-7199.
Commitment: 1-2 hours per day, one or more days each week (minimum) for at least 3 months. Interact and build relationships with Club members as individuals and in small groups over time. You may start by shooting some pool, playing cards, or even playing video games. Over time the relationships you build will leave members looking forward to your next visit and will help them make good choices in their lives.
Commitment: 30-60 minutes one or more days per week. Help members with their homework. This is a help to parents and our members. You can help elementary, middle school or high school students
If you're not sure if you’re able to commit to be a mentor, but want to help out, we can schedule you for “drop-in” time to play games and hang out with Club members. What you do and who you see may change every day but the fun will always be there!
Do you have a special skill or interest that you would like to share? Art, fitness, music, cooking, education, and more! Let us know what you’d like to bring to the Club and we can work with you on making the most of your time and expertise! Activities run from 3:30-5: 00 Monday - Friday
TECH HELP Are you good with computers? We need help with our website and set-up and maintenance of our Club technology
MEALS PROGRAM We serve dinner every day and often do cooking projects with the kids. We can always use an extra hand in the cutting up fruits and veggies, serving meals or helping with the dishes.
Born in Luxembourg, Roger Kayser became a professional Chef who traveled the world. Now settled in Vermont, Roger has been a regular volunteer working with our Club members in Culinary Arts. Roger says, “when I see the enthusiasm in the kids' faces, they are so eager to learn, they appreciate the professionalism I am demonstrating.”
He started off by coaching four Club members who were participating in the 2020 Jr. Iron Chef challenge before the event was canceled due to COVID-19. Since returning to the Club, Roger has picked up right where he left off. When asked what he hopes that kids can take away from this program; Roger states, “I want them to take away that cooking can be fun and not a chore.”
Roger has worked with Club members on techniques, different styles of cooking, and developing new creations. Oftentimes Club members may be trying something for the first time and finding out that they like it!
The Club is so grateful to have Roger volunteer with our members mentoring them through our culinary program. Thank you, Roger!
