Leadership Opportunities

Youth Leaders

The NBGC Youth Leaders are the backbone of our organization, open to youth who are in 7th or 8th grade and at least 13 years old. The Youth Leaders will be responsible for working counter, helping with the After School Programs, as well as learning to scorekeep and officiate all of the sports offered at The Clubhouse. But Most importantly, they will be role models for the youth that attend our programs.

The Neighborhood Boys & Girls Club will be taking applications for Spring 2019 Leader Candidates. If you are 13 years old or older and think you have what it takes to make a great Leader please contact Jim Pottinger at jpottinger9@nbgc.org

The Leader Program is what NBGC is all about! The youth leader team is comprised of 13-25 year old leaders & staff who are responsible for the day to day operations offered by NBGC. This group of dedicated young people facilitate all athletic, social and educational programs. Individually they bring to the Clubhouse a variety of strengths that collectively make an AWESOME TEAM!
