BE a mentor at Boys & Girls Clubs
Boys & Girls Clubs of Edinburg RGV welcomes and appreciates those in the community who want to support our efforts through volunteering.
We strongly believe in the valuable role that volunteers play in transforming the lives of our members. As little as one hour per week is all it takes to have a positive impact on a child’s life. Every Club offers volunteer opportunities for adults to work directly with youth as mentors and tutors, and by providing career guidance, internships and college preparation support. We also welcome corporations seeking one day, project-based volunteer opportunities.

- Volunteer Application
