- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Central New Mexico (BGCCNM) offer a wide range of volunteer opportunities. Whether you are looking for a mid to long-term project for yourself, or a short term activity for your organization, BGCCNM can always use your help. As a volunteer, you will be able to serve in any one of our Clubs doing a variety of activities. Volunteers are needed Mondays-Fridays from roughly 1:00pm-6:00pm, and nights/weekends if we have additional events going on. If you cannot dedicate the entire block of time, we will work around your schedule to find a time that works for you!
Some possible ways to get involved include:
*Tutor a child and help them with their homework
*Mentor a child and work with them on arts & crafts projects, sports activities, or programs in the technology lab
*Help us at one of BGCCNM’s signature events such as The Blue Door Ball, Annual Golf Tournament, or at any one of our ongoing third party events.
*Assist with Club improvements such clean up, gardening and remodeling projects.
*Host and help facilitate an event within our Club (ex. Holiday party, musical performance, science demonstration, etc.)
*Utilize one of your skills and talents to help teach the children a new skill or topic
As you complete more hours, you will progress up levels and receive recognition for your contributions to our organization.
Level 1 Volunteer: 25 hours or less
Level 2 Volunteer: 26-50 hours
Level 3 Volunteer: 51-75 hours
Level 4 Volunteer: 75-100 hours

Community service volunteers are accepted at both the Seligman (Albuquerque Heights) and Schumann (Rio Rancho) Branches. To volunteer, you must come into the Club to fill out paperwork and to set up a schedule. All Community Service volunteers must successfully pass a background check prior to entering the Club and must be willing to sign a volunteer policy and abide by all rules of the Club. Community services hours are 9:00am-1:00pm Monday-Friday (except days where the Club is open all day and there are children present).
