Volunteer

The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Nashua has been recognized for its outstanding work with the greater Nashua community. We could not accomplish all of our great work without the help of our volunteers. Our volunteers are former Club members, parents of Club members, and outstanding citizens who are dedicated to giving back to the youth of our community.

The Club is supported by a committed group of people who serve as members of our boards and Trustees of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Nashua Charitable Foundation.

Being a Volunteer

The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Nashua refers to volunteers as those who, by choice, contribute time and service in one or more of the Club’s Core Program Areas or in some organizational capacity to assist the Club in reaching its mission.

Volunteers can assist the Club in 2 ways:

  1. Short-term Commitment: Volunteers can participate briefly in special events, or have a limited role under the supervision of professional staff.
  2. Sustained Commitment: Volunteers participate during the school year or summer programs, donating time and energy on a regularly weekly or monthly basis in daily program areas.
