The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Capital Area would not function without our incredible volunteers! They vary in age, profession, and future goals, but they all want to see our Club kids flourish into responsible, productive, and caring citizens. Today, we’d like to introduce you to a few of our regular volunteers. You’ll love them as much as we do!
Anthony is a 21-year-old Washington Heights native who volunteers as an assistant for the Albany Clubhouse. He has been involved in service since he was in middle school, and his goal is to work as a director or counselor in higher education. This is because, he says, “I have seen a huge gap in minority representation in this field, and I want to take leadership in these roles to change that.”
Megan is currently interning for the BGCCA development team. She volunteered with the American Cancer Society and tutored children when she was in high school, and saw the BGCCA internship as a good opportunity. After she finishes her internship, she is moving to Long Island to work for a finance firm.
More than anything, Courtney is passionate about helping people. She plays a vital role in BGCCA’s office organization and assists in event preparation. Courtney wanted to volunteer for BGCCA because she wanted to serve Club kids in any way she could. After she graduates from SUNY Albany in the spring, she will apply for accelerated nursing programs so she can help people every day. “If I can help someone,” she said, “why wouldn’t I?”
