Just a few hours a week as a volunteer will not only make a difference in a child's life, it will make a positive impact on yours as well. Volunteering at the Boys & Girls Club will provide you with new experiences and skills as you serve as a role model to kids and positively impact the communities in which they live. Our goal is to match your availability, skills and interests with a Club near where you work or live. In addition to one-time and ongoing volunteer opportunities at our Clubs, volunteers are also welcome to assist at our events and at our Ft. Lauderdale Administrative Office. All volunteers must be 18 years or older to volunteer in our clubs and 21 years or older to volunteer at fundraising event. We do not offer volunteer hours for court ordered community service.
