General Volunteer Opportunities

Boys and Girls Clubs make a difference by giving young people a safe place to learn and grow. Last year, over 16,300 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.

AstraZeneca's Young Health Program is an initiative designed to help foster emotional and mental well-being among youth across the country and the company’s Community Connection Day extends their commitment in a number of ways. AstraZeneca Canada staff volunteer at Boys and Girls Clubs across the country, rolling up their sleeves to support a variety of facility improvement projects that would not have been possible without them.

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 Peter Walker, our Race for Kids Event Manager.
