Volunteer Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in volunteering – we are always excited to welcome new volunteers and look forward to working with you or your group.

Our programs are regularly in need of volunteers to participate with our After School Program at our many Austin-area locations. This includes opportunities to assist with activities like tutoring, arts and crafts, sports, and fitness classes, among other things. We are also happy to coordinate with you to customize a group volunteer experience that will allow you to build a volunteer opportunity around your schedule and interest, or bring a particular area of expertise to our Club youth.

As a BGCAA volunteer, you have several ways that you can get involved including:

How to get started!

 

1.

Complete the volunteer form below.

Our Community Engagement Manager will reach out to you shortly to discuss current volunteer opportunities.

2.

You will be sent an email to submit the Background Check Notice & Authorization.

Please fill out both forms for completion. 

3.

After submitting the forms, you will be prompted to follow the link to complete the $16 Background Check fee.

Thank you for supporting Great Futures!

For assistance, please contact volunteer@bgcaustin.org | 512-444-7199

Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age to help within a Club.

Note: For planning purposes, groups are asked to contact us at least three (3) weeks in advance if they are interested in a special project. Because of Club schedules and facilities, we are not able to accommodate every group’s request to volunteer. Please be advised that all volunteers will be required to attend a volunteer orientation and undergo a background check.

The safety and well-being of our youth, staff, and volunteers are our highest priority. Please read the Volunteer Handbook before filling out the volunteer form.

Office Depot

A big thank you to the Austin Office Depot team for bringing the magic of the holidays to our Clubs. Not only organizing a company-wide toy drive, but the Office Depot team also joined us at Home Club during Club on the Go and delivered the toys to our Club kids, who overjoyed chose their favorite gift from a selection of over 150 toys! We are grateful to the Office Depot team for making a #depotdifference and bringing countless smiles to our kids.

For any questions, please contact Sarah Begovac at sarah.begovac@bgcaustin.org.
