We strongly believe in the valuable role that volunteers play in transforming the lives of our members. As little as one hour per week can have a positive impact on a child’s life. The Boys & Girls Club of Paris offers volunteer opportunities for adults to work directly with youth as mentors and tutors, and by providing career guidance, internships and college preparation support. We also welcome corporate and other groups seeking service opportunities.


There are MANY great ways to get involved with The Boys & Girls Club of Paris. Below are just a few, but we always welcome new ideas for members of our community to build relationships with our kids. For questions or to schedule your volunteer opportunity, please call the main office at (479)963-3577 and speak to Holly Hurst or Jordan Reed.

The staff of the Boys & Girls Club of Paris take our responsibility for the youth in our care seriously. We pride ourselves as a safe haven for youth. Because of this, all volunteers (excluding one-day service projects that do not interact with children) must undergo a screening process that includes:

  • Volunteer Application
  • Background Check
  • Volunteers must be ages 18 or older

Please note that a copy of your government issued ID, i.e. driver’s license, birth certificate, passport, etc. must accompany the background check release form.
