A volunteer freely offers to contribute skills or services to enhance the organization and strengthen its impact on youth development, without expectation of financial or other tangible compensation from the organization. Volunteers are considered employees with the Boys & Girls Club of Bulloch County.
A volunteer application must be completed and submitted either in person or via email to the organizations Volunteer Representative. The Agreement Form must be signed and dated by the volunteer, agreeing to abide by the policies and procedures, and committing to uphold the mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bulloch County. The application and agreement form will be kept in the volunteer’s personnel file.
