Where Your Impact Becomes Greater

Two Girls Working with Robot
Two Girls Working Art Project

Here at Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Northwest Indiana, your gift becomes greater. Join us and feel the difference you’re making every day.


You can make a tremendously positive impact by building bonds, helping with homework, providing career advice, or sharing any of your special gifts. Meet other community leaders as you contribute to brighter futures for young people in your own neighborhood.


Have an idea for what you’d like to share? Great! Need help in finding your spot? We have ideas! Give us a call to discuss how you can make a difference in the lives of young people close to you, (219) 764-CLUB


Thank you for considering volunteering with us!

How to Become a Volunteer


You can reach out to your local Club directly to see how your talents can fit into their needs. Once you fill out a volunteer application, we will run a background check. Once approved, you are part of our family and can begin volunteering at our Clubs and changing lives!
