Volunteer Opportunities

The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Cumberland Plateau offers a diverse array of activities designed to meet the unique interests and needs of young people throughout our community. We currently provide services for over 2,000 youth.

How You Can Help

Do you have creative and interesting ideas? How about enthusiasm for a particular subject or hobby? Do you just enjoy interacting with youth? Any of these qualities are a strong foundation to start building your volunteer experience with the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Cumberland Plateau! Listed below are some ways you can help be a part of our club:


Enhance a child’s life by becoming someone a member can count on to have fun with during club activities. We at the Boys & Girls Club encourage volunteers to grow into their role as a special part of a member’s life.


Help members struggling academically – this may include helping them to develop improved study habits or simply assisting with homework assignments and other school projects.


We have coaching opportunities open year-around in a wide array of sports.
