Man helping children with homework

How can “One” person make a difference?

While money is a necessary component for the Oscar Cross Boys & Girls Club to function and operate, volunteers are essential for our programs to flourish. We serve between 120 and 140 kids daily. With volunteers that believe in our mission walking our halls and engaging with the youth that attend the club we are making a huge impact, and you can be a part of this movement. After filling out the proper paper work you can get started in as little as three days.

Any type of monetary donation is accepted and appreciated, but please recognize that your time is just as valuable if not more. While giving your time not only will you be providing a service to your community and future, you’ll also be providing a service to yourself. The only thing worse than having nothing is having nothing to give. Your presence at our club can change a child’s life forever.

Our Club is always looking for volunteers with skills or interests in fine arts, crafts, dance, music, sports, computer technology…you name it. And, we’ve created a simple application process – take a look.

Volunteer Commitment

Generally, we need volunteers who are able to commit to one or two hours per week, for at least three months. The times of greatest need for volunteers are weekdays from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Some short-term projects and single-event opportunities arise as well.

If you can’t make a regular commitment, you may still want to consider engaging through Corporate & Group Volunteering. For more information, contact the office at 270-444-9124 or email us at
