Inspire Boys and Girls Club members to BE GREAT while BEING GREAT yourself! 

We consider volunteering an opportunity because you cannot imagine how fulfilling it can be!  Most of our volunteers start out with the idea that they are providing a community service and indeed, they are!  However, very soon, our volunteers discover how good it feels to help shape the lives of our children.  At the Boys & Girls Club of Jackson there are many opportunities for community-minded organizations and individuals to improve the lives of children.  Below are some of the areas in which we seek assistance.

 Tutoring - Power Hour

Arts & Crafts

Computer Classes

Sports and Recreational Activities

Fundraising
