The Boys & Girls Clubs of Amarillo is in need of volunteers to assist with daily club activities and programs. Included in the daily needs of the club we are also in need of three volunteers to teach Boys & Girls Club healthy and life skills curriculums (listed below):
- SMART Moves: The SMART Moves (Skills Mastery and Resistance Training) prevention/education program addresses problems such as drug and alcohol use and premature sexual activity.
- SMART Girls: An outgrowth of the popular and effective SMART Moves program, SMART Girls is a health, fitness, prevention/education and self-esteem enhancement program for girls ages 8 to 17.
- Passport to Manhood: promotes and teaches responsibility in Club boys ages 11-14. Passport to Manhood consists of 14 sessions, each of which concentrates on a specific aspect of manhood through highly interactive activities.
Each Club participant receives his own “passport” to underscore the notion that he is on a personal journey of maturation and growth. Passport to Manhood represents a targeted effort to engage young boys in discussions activities that reinforce positive behavior.
The volunteers selected to teach these programs will be responsible for implementing these programs once a week in a 45 minute session with the assistance of a Maverick employee. We have a flexible schedule which will allow for selected volunteers to teach when their schedule allows between the hours of 3:30 and 7:00 p.m Monday through Friday. All other volunteers are welcome at anytime!
All volunteers are required to complete a volunteer information sheet and background check!
