Why Volunteer

At the Boys and Girls Club of Lewistown, we have a great opportunity to “Empower Youth, and Strengthen Futures.” We currently serve 90 families and 135 students. Our dedicated staff cannot do this without you and your help. The needs that each of these students represent is gigantic. Research says that, “every child who winds up doing well has at least one stable and committed relationship with a caring adult.” – Josh Shipp

The Goal​

It is our goal with our volunteer program to provide a safe environment to provide opportunities for caring adults to be:

1. Trained to serve in the Club- All volunteers once approved by the Volunteer coordinator and a background check has been completed, will go through training with the Volunteer Coordinator before working with the students.
2. Serve in the capacity that best fits the volunteer and the needs of the Club- After the volunteer has been trained, they will be placed in a volunteer role that best suits, their giftedness, and/or desire.
