Work with Kids:
To work directly with our youth, we require a 12-week (minimum one hour per week) initial commitment, so that you can have the time to build mentoring relationships with our Club kids.
Our Clubs are open from 3-6 p.m. on weekdays. A typical volunteer session can include, but isn't limited to: tutoring, coaching, playing games, and creating art with our youth. Click HERE for a detailed list of available opportunities that you can join.
After completing the application, you'll be contacted about attending a volunteer orientation (it includes a tour of our Club) to discuss our volunteer policies.
If you're most interested in a one-time commitment, then we'd love to have you join our "Special Events Team" and assist our staff at one or more community and fundraising events we host each year.
After completing the volunteer application, you'll receive email invitations to each Club event, and then you can commit to whichever event(s) most interest you. At your first event, you'll come 1/2 hour early to tour the Club and learn about our volunteer policies for event volunteers.
High School Students: Volunteers ages 16-18 who are still in high school are considered youth volunteers. For liability reasons, all youth volunteers must be a current member of the Boys & Girls Club of Kootenai County (to become a member, click here).
ALL interested individuals (including youth volunteers): Submit this form, and our Volunteer Coordinator will contact you shortly.
You'll be able to indicate on the application which opportunity you're most interested in.
Spend the day or afternoon with the club kids, and bring your brown bag lunch.
We can accommodate groups and corporate organizations of almost all sizes! We'll work with you to coordinate a one-time or short-term (ongoing) volunteer opportunity.
Opportunities for group volunteers include, but aren't limited to: joining a monthly family night, helping with students' homework, running a carnival, and playing fun group games (like dodgeball, ping pong, etc).
Interested groups: Submit this form, and our Volunteer Coordinator will contact you shortly.
Only one application is needed per group.
