Two Girls Doing Homework

Become a volunteer for the Nantucket Boys & Girls Club!

We are always looking for volunteers interested in helping youth build life skills, learn about their community, and explore and develop their creativity.  Volunteers can help children by reading to them, helping with homework, teaching skills in a computer lab, coaching a sports team, or assisting with arts and crafts projects.  A variety of opportunities exist year-round.

We know how important and valuable your time is. Please know, being a volunteer here at the Club is an incredibly rewarding experience, and one that we very much appreciate! Each year over 100 community members volunteer their time here at the Club to help us to succeed in our mission “To empower the youth of Nantucket to reach their full potential”.
