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 Alicia 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.
From volunteering in programs to general assistance in Club help, this month we want to recognize Stanley Huber as our September Volunteer of the Month!
Stanley started volunteering at the Club in the summer of 2019 for woodworking projects with our Club Camp. This year Stanley joined us for a second time in our woodworking week where he led a project for Club members to build their very own keepsake box! He put a ton of time into planning and preparation with the Staff and ensured a successful week for our members.
"I volunteer because I enjoy young people. Their enthusiasm and zeal are contagious, and it helps keep me enthused. The closer I work with the members, the better I like it."
When the Club needed help in other areas, Stanley was quick to help to support us in building personal coat hooks for Club members to keep their belongings. For all his time and dedication, we want to thank Stanley for everything he has done to support the efforts of the Boys & Girls Club!
