Individual Volunteers

Virtual Volunteering Opportunities

Due to COVID-19, we are currently unable to accept volunteers in-person at the Boys & Girls Club. However, there are still many ways that you can help support our members – who need you now more than ever.
Below are a few options for Virtual Volunteering:
Option 1: Record a STEAM-Based Video to be Shared with Members via Social Media
  • Videos typically get the best response when they are about 3-5 minutes long.
  • Please include your name & that you are volunteering for the Boys & Girls Club at the beginning of your video.
  • Content Areas – Simple Science Experiments, Music Creation & Instruction, Robotics, Yoga, Dance, Programming, Etc.
Questions & recorded videos can be emailed to virtual.club@lbgc.org. From there, our staff will review the video to ensure that it follows BGCGL policy.
Option 2: Remotely assist with administrative tasks
  • Stuff envelopes and write notes
  • Gather information online and on social media
  • Work on spreadsheets
  • Email Alumni
  • Organize digital photos or file
  • And more!
If you or someone you know is interested in assisting with this type of work, please email our Volunteer Coordinator, Tara Levine at tara.levine@lbgc.org or complete the form below:

In-Person Volunteering

At this time, we do not have options for in-person volunteering. The following options will be available once we are able to resume regular programming at the Club. In the meantime, if you would like to discuss ideas for ways to support youth in Lowell, please contact Volunteer Coordinator Tara Levine at tara.levine@lbgc.org.

Volunteering with Our Youth 

At the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Lowell, we rely on individual volunteers in all of our programs. Volunteers work directly with our Club members, and make it possible to serve more than 300 youth every day. Volunteers have the opportunity to share their skills, talents, and passions with our members and serve as positive, adult role models that they can look up to. 

We have a variety of opportunities for individuals who want to volunteer at the Club. During the Academic Year, volunteer hours fall between 2:00 pm and 8:00 pm, and during the Summer, volunteer hours fall between 9:00 AM And 5:00 PM.
