Great Futures start with you!

One of the best volunteer opportunities in Springfield MO is spending time with kids at the Boys and Girls Club, like the man in this picture teaching a girl how to golf.

Individual Opportunities

As little as one hour per week can have a very real impact on the life of a child. Each Club offers opportunities to work directly with youth as mentors, tutors, sports referees and coaches, and teachers.

If you have a special talent you'd like to share, just let us know. The time of greatest need for intentional, regular volunteers is during the middle-late afternoon hours. Note: The Boys & Club does not accept court-appointed community service.

Group/Corporate Opportunities

We also welcome corporations and other organizations seeking one-day, project-based volunteer opportunities. Short-term projects and single event opportunities do occasionally arise. So, if you are unable to make a long-term commitment, you can still get involved.

Youth Mentoring Program

Mentoring volunteers work with either a small group of members or one on one, participating in a range of activities with the goal of giving members personal attention and guidance to open new doors of hope and opportunity!

Our mentoring application is currently closed. Check back soon!

Coaches & Referees

Student Volunteer Opportunities
