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.
It comes with no surprise that the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Vergennes has the best volunteers. So much of our success can easily be attributed to the dedication our volunteers have.
This Volunteer of the Month, Ashlie Smith took her passion to lead a Health & Fitness program for our Club Members!
From a range of different activities like Yoga, Tabata, or even learning mental health and nutrition! “The opportunity to meet some GREAT kids from our community and the ability to teach health and fitness is a way that is really FUN!”
Club members had the ability to learn the means of fitness and what that truly means. Ashlie’s goal for our Club members taking part in this program was “that being healthy isn’t just about food and exercise. It’s about your mindset, your happiness, and how you FEEL”.
Ashlie’s favorite part of the program was “making the granola bars! It was fun and messy!”
“It’s such a WONDERFUL program! The kids are fun! The facility is beautiful! And the staff are amazing! This is an incredible opportunity you have to enrich the lives of these kids and I hope you have SO much fun teaching what you love.”
Thank you so much Ashlie! We could not have done this without you!
