Did you know that if you complete and journal 50 or more volunteer hours this year with our organization, you can request a $750 Volunteer Incentive Program (VIP) grant for our organization? Employees of Verizon may request VIP grants on behalf of two separate organizations for a total of $1,500 each year.

V.I.P Valued, Inspirational, Partners
Originally founded by volunteers, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Union County has provided safe and positive places for children, youth and families in Union County since 1955. The dedication, passion and commitment of volunteers has enabled our agency to help thousands of young people realize their potential.
We rely on the support of hundreds of volunteers. They are the heart and soul of Boys and Girls Club.
Volunteers contribute in many different ways, some acting as role models, board members, employers, alumni or fundraisers.
Each individual, who generously donates their time, brings personal and professional interests and skills that dramatically enrich the lives of our kids and their families.
