Human Services Council - Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP)

  • 3 people are interested

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest Washington seeks to provide a positive environment, quality programs, and lifelong learning skills for all school age youth in Vancouver and its surrounding areas, with special concern for those coming from disadvantaged circumstances. Instead of walking the streets or being home alone, youth come to the Club where trained professionals provide: a safe environment for kids to have fun and be themselves; constructive programs that channel youthful energy into challenging pursuits; and supportive relationships that help build young people’s self-esteem.

Volunteers are needed to supervise a program room (art, games, gym, tech, and education) with a staff member and get to know the members from grades 1 through 5. Volunteers are also needed to work one-on-one with a member who would really benefit from having a tutor or having someone to hang out with once a week. Orientation is provided every Wednesday from 6-7 pm at the Clinton and Gloria John Club. Minimum age for volunteers is 14. This activity is located on a bus line.

Shifts available are:

Monday - Thursday 3 - 7 p.m.

Friday 3 - 6 p.m.
