Every kid deserves a great future, and you can be part of it!

The Club provides many opportunities for community members to volunteer their time and talents. We always welcome new volunteers and invite you to share your expertise with our members who are always ready to learn!


Individual Volunteers can assist with Clubhouse activities such as homework help, mentoring, sports, arts & crafts, and reading. Our Clubhouses loosely operate based on the following schedule:

  • 3:30-4:30 Power Hour (Homework Help & Educational Games)
  • 4:30-5:00 Supper Club
  • 5:00-7:00 Arts & Crafts, Sports Leagues, Board Games, Enrichment Programs
  • 7:00-8:00 Teen Programs

Small Groups (2-10 people)
Split into groups of 1-2 people to help with Clubhouse activities. As a whole group, and with input from our Community Impact Director, you can assist with or implement a special event.

Large Groups (10+ people)
Larger groups may help maintain and improve club facilities by cleaning, landscaping, painting etc. Other options include holding a special event/activity or hosting a donation drive to benefit club members or our Community Schools.

Roberto Clemente Field Volunteers (Clemente MVPs) can assist with opening the field for the community and keeping the turf and surrounding areas free of leaves and litter.


Per Boys & Girls Club of America and Pennsylvania state policy, all volunteers are required to obtain appropriate clearances prior to the start of their involvement with the Boys & Girls Club of Lancaster. ***All RECURRING (more than one visit) volunteers will need to obtain their PA State Criminal Background Check, PA Child Abuse History Clearances, FBI Fingerprints, and Mandated Reporter Certificate. All clearances must be dated within the last year.
Check any/all that you are interested in.
Clubhouses are currently closed on WEDNESDAYS for staff training and professional development.
