Volunteer Opportunity With The Boys and Girls Club

  • Who?               Elementary (1st-5th) age students
  • What?              College Day
  • When?             Friday, March 7th, 2014 from 3:30-6pm
  • Where?            Boys & Girls Clubhouses throughout Vancouver
  • Why?               To expose our kids to college and promote a college going atmosphere
  • General Overview
    • Our goal for this event is to expose over 650 elementary age youth to college, the college experience and the opportunities available to college students. Activities will be planned by BGC staff and college student volunteers.
  • How you can help
    • We need college students to volunteer their time! Our hope is that we can have a group of student athletes and a group of non-athletes. Generally, our student athletes run a small sports clinic in the gym or a tournament in the games room (pool, ping pong, etc.) The non-athletes we would hope to come bring something they love to do to share with our kids. For example, science students could share an experiment or art students could create an awesome piece of artwork that the kids could watch them create or something else that inspires them.
    • We would ask our volunteers to be at the designated club by 3:30pm and they would be done by 6pm
    • We would especially love to have CU students there too because we will have Luther at their site as well!
