The Boy's & Girls Clubs of the Los Angeles Harbor

The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Los Angeles Harbor is the LARGEST daily provider of youth development programming in the entire South Bay - serving over 2200 youth DAILY!  Many of our members come from poverty level families and and are highly at-risk.  We are currently recruiting volunteers to assist in our Learning Centers at our 13th Street & Cabrillo Avenue site in San Pedro (10 minutes from Marymount).  Marymount students in the past have been great volunteers in our program.

We have three separate Learning Centers where we can use your assistance:  Elementary, Middle School and High School.  The elementary and middle school centers primarily provide homework assistance, computer assisted instruction and basic reading and math tutoring.  Our high school program is called "College Bound" as we dedicate ourselves to provide a college pathway for all of our teens.  Besides homework assistance, College Bound provides academic case management, SAT preparedness activities, assistance in applications for college acceptance, SAT exams and FAFSA; writing workshops, and mentoring.  We primarily are looking for volunteers to support children in all three centers with homework assistance - but volunteers have often assisted in the other center activities as well.

We have "flexible" hours which should be of benefit to Marymount College students.

In addition, we are recruiting volunteers who can work as assistants in our other program areas (fine arts, dance, music, sports, recording studio, etc), can assist at our entry desks and/or can provide data input.

If interested in volunteering, please contact Tony Tripp of the Boys & Girls Club at (310) 833-1322 ext 236.

We thank you for your time and consideration of the children we serve.
