Volunteer & Mentor


Working with youth today means a brighter future for everyone.

When you volunteer at a Boys & Girls Club of the Mississippi Delta, you can make a difference in the lives of youth and give back to your community. Within the first few minutes of walking into a Club, you know you’re in a special place. Filled with the sounds and energy of spirited children and friendly, caring professionals, the Club is a fun and hopeful environment. Whether you help with homework, coach a game, or teach an art project, you’ll have the opportunity to build healthy relationships with young people eager for adult guidance, and have a positive impact on their lives. In turn, you will find that spending time with these young people has a positive impact on you as well.

There are many ways you can volunteer*!

  • At Your Local Club You Can:
    • Serve on the local ADVISORY COMMITTEE where you can
    • Be an ADVOCATE for the Club,
