General Volunteer Opportunities
Boys and Girls Clubs make a
difference by giving young people a safe place to learn and grow. Last year,
over 15,000 volunteers gave their time and skills to support our Clubs across
Canada. To learn more about volunteering, please contact your local Club (Find a Club).
Please Note: All volunteers who wish to volunteer in a Boys and Girls Club will be required to undergo screening, training and appropriate police checks to ensure their safety.

Here are some of the ways that employee volunteers are making a difference.
Capital One employees come out every spring to help out
with our national fundraiser, Capital One Race for Kids™. This event is an excellent
way for corporate groups of all kinds to have fun together in an urban, adventure race that raises funds for Boys and
Girls Clubs in communities across Canada. Capital One Race for Kids™ has
been a success in large part because of the volunteering efforts of Capital One
employees. As if that weren’t enough, their employees also help out at local
Clubs doing beautification work and attending workshops. To find out more about
Capital One Race for Kids™ and how to get involved at an event near you, visit
our website or contact Jessica Alvarado, our Race for Kids Coordinator.
Youth Fund supports
the Rogers Raising the Grade program in Clubs across Canada and scores of Rogers
employees volunteer as tutors and mentors to help increase academic skills,
high school graduation rates and access to post-secondary education for young
people. Rogers employees also volunteer for local programs and special events at
local Boys and Girls Clubs, helping to make a lasting impact on young lives
from coast to coast.
WestJet employees volunteer their time, energy and skills to help improve the lives of young people living in communities across the country. From holiday parties to dinners to winter festivals, WestJetters have a tremendous impact in our local communities.
Investments supports Unity Day in the Greater Toronto area,
bringing 2,000 Club members and staff together to nourish their sense of
community and experience a fun-filled day with games, recreational activities
and food. Many dedicated Fidelity employees spend the day participating in a
wide range of fun and engaging activities.
employees are valued Boys and Girls Club volunteers in many ways, from Club
renovations and holiday activities to hosting Game Tech training workshops for
staff. In 2015, Microsoft staff
hosted introductory online tutorials and in-person sessions at several Clubs
