Volunteer Position Descriptions

Snack:

Every day at 4:00 p.m. Club members enjoy a healthy snack. Meals include foods from at least two major food groups and are served by trained snack helpers. As a volunteer, you can help facilitate and manage the snack program. Help serve food, monitor the cafeteria or use your cooking skills to help prepare meals for events!

Mentoring:

Our mentoring program focuses on providing club members with emotional support while dealing with family struggles, behavioral issues etc. Mentors talk with their club members about career exploration, post-secondary education, drug and alcohol abuse prevention and self-esteem issues. The mentoring program can be done in an individual or group setting with a required meeting time of once a week.

Homework Help:

Students get homework help through an intense two- to three-hour after school program. Members read by themselves, to other children, listen to a mentor read, or read to a mentor for 20 minutes. Volunteer to assist club members with homework, reading, or just be there to answer their questions!

Coaching:

Help youth achieve and maintain fitness, acquire a broad range of skills, and develop a sense of teamwork, cooperation, and fairness that leads to the development of healthy lifestyle patterns.

Special Skills:

Do you have a special skill that would be useful to our clubs or their members? Do you want to use that skill to enrich the lives of young people throughout Champaign-Urbana? You can do just that with Don Moyer Boys and Girls Club! Lead or assist with art classes, computer skills workshops, music studio performances and more!
