BGCC is proud of the high quality programs and services that we offer our members. This wouldn’t be possible without the many volunteers who give their time and talents to our members every day.

If you’re sincerely interested in inspiring, motivating and improving young lives, we’d love to have you join our team as a volunteer! Here are some of the volunteer opportunities that are available right now:

  • Tutoring
  • Mentor opportunities
  • Coaching and refereeing
  • Character development and life skills coaches (for Passport to Manhood and SMART Girls)

Before you can become a volunteer, it’s required that you first attend formal volunteer orientation training, offered monthly or more often if needed.

Please contact Cindy Newton, Community Engagement Coordinator at 216-883-2106, ext. 228, or, cnewton@clevekids.org to reserve your preferred date for volunteer orientation training.

2014 Volunteer Orientation Training Dates

Thursday, August 21, from 5:00 – 6:30 p.m. @ Broadway Club (6114 Broadway Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44127)


< Call for upcoming Volunteer Orientations after these dates >

  • Volunteer application forms will be distributed at the Volunteer Orientation Training.
  • All volunteers must submit to a background check which requires a fee of $10.00, payable at time of submission, by cash or check. The payment can also be made by going to www.clevekids.org and where it indicates a $10 donation, fill out the information and indicate “Background Check.”
  • Interviews for placement will be scheduled following Volunteer Orientation Training; when your background check comes back as cleared and application forms are complete. The Community Engagement Coordinator will contact you to schedule the interview.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland. We look forward to hearing from you, and our members look forward to getting to know you!
