Become a Coach

Coaches are the heart of our program! Each season, two or more volunteer coaches inspire and guide a team through our tried-and-true curriculum. If you're ready to directly make an impact, then this role is for you.

Skill-Based Opportunities

Our council is seeking volunteers who can support social media content. Our current needs are:  photography, videography, and content for posts. Volunteers would need to be available afterschool when programming is in progress. Our program locations and times vary by season. A volunteer can work on one or two sites near you or region-wide or some combination in between.


Board Members are volunteers who use their skills and passion for our mission to move the mission forward.
