Get Involved

Your support matters. Without our engaged and supportive community, we would not be able to accomplish our mission. Whatcom County youth face issues like food insecurity, failure to graduate on-time, and an elevated likelihood that they will become over-weight or obese. In order to overcome these challenges, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Whatcom County rely on community partners for more than just financial aid. Many of our partners participate in the very programs that are designed to combat the most pervasive issue Whatcom County youth face. We encourage partners to explore the different ways they can get involved with our Clubhouses. Whether it is on the field or court, mentoring youth through athletics, volunteering at one of our annual fundraising events, or assisting staff inside one of our four Clubhouses on a regular basis, we are always looking for more helping hands.
