Volunteer Process

1

The Application

Prospective volunteers complete and return the application to Boys & Girls Clubs of Grand Rapids. Applications will be available at our Steil Club Administrative Office or you can fill out an application below. Please attach a copy of your driver’s license or photo ID for processing.

2

The Background Check

The continued safety of our Club members is of the utmost importance. Therefore, in keeping with the national policy of Boys & Girls Clubs of America, every adult staff and volunteer member is subject to a criminal background check prior to beginning the volunteer or employment period.

3

Handbook & Orientation

Volunteers Orientations are held every Tuesday and Thursday at 12pm and 5:30pm. Volunteers will receive the Volunteer Handbook, meet staff, tour the Club and discuss proper practices while in the Club.

4

Placement

After completion of the Volunteer Orientation and Training, the volunteer will be placed within a club program. Every effort will be made to grant volunteer requests as to where a volunteer is placed. However, occasions may arise where the volunteer is asked to serve outside of his/her regular duties.

Note: Submitting an application does not guarantee volunteer placement.
