TYPES OF VOLUNTEER ACTIVITIES

Tutoring/Homework Help

Homework Helpers & Evening/Weekend Tutors are needed for at least one hour a week to help Club kids with their homework. Grade levels of Club kids vary but focus mostly on elementary school levels. Our Clubhouses seek homework helpers and one-on-one tutors Monday thru Thursday between the hours of 3pm - 5pm. Volunteer needs and hours may vary by location.

Teen Center / College Bound 

College Bound introduces and exposes Club members to the opportunity to attend college and prepares them for a successful experience. Members participating in College Bound receive individual case management, support, and testing preparations to help them meet requirements for public and private universities. 
Sports/Health & Fitness

Teaches kids how to play sports and/or how to be physically active! Volunteers are needed for at least one hour a week to help Club members learn fundamentals of sports, new fitness skills, and a love of being active.

Early Learning Center (ELC)

We run a licensed Early Learning Center at our Baldwin Park site for the youth, ages 2-5. Our Early Learning Center offers play-based and academic instruction for our youngest members so that they are kindergarten ready. We also provide the children with opportunities for social interaction to develop their social and emotional wellness. If you are looking for volunteer hours for your Early Childhood Development courses we are always looking for volunteer help.

In order to volunteer at our ELC site,  you will be required to get a live scan for a background check.  You can contact Michelle Clayton, ELC Director, at (626) 338-1854 for more information on volunteer opportunities at our ELC.
We have individual volunteer opportunities at all of our club sites (Monterey Park, Ramona Gardens, Estrada Courts, Baldwin Park, La Puente) and hold volunteer orientations monthly. This process is for adult volunteers (18+). Youth volunteers should contact their local Clubhouse for volunteer opportunities.

For more information contact Charles Karsch or Frank Reyes at (626) 573-2831 or email to volunteer@wsgvbgc.org.
