Why I volunteer

“I volunteer at Boys and Girls Club of Cleveland because it provides a dynamic environment where meaningful engagement with youth can be attained in a variety of different ways: from sports and other extracurriculars, to education-related activities and career mentoring. The atmosphere created at BGCC is one of family, which is of importance to anyone looking to become involved, but particularly to the members of the Club.  This safe, family-oriented environment encourages growth among its members, staff and other contributors.  Moreover, the atmosphere at BGCC and the outreach it encourages embodies the cohesion and solidarity required of a well-functioning society, and these are needed now more than ever.  I’m happy to be a part of the organization and I’d recommend volunteering for BGCC to anyone looking for community engagement; there is something here for everyone.”
