Volunteer

As a nonprofit organization, BBF depends on volunteers as a vital part of our team. Our volunteers bring fresh ideas, energy, and support for special events and the daily programming of kidLAB and YouthLAB. By joining the BBF team, you become part of an organization that has been making a positive impact on North Lawndale’s youth since 1961. We seek creative, smart, caring individuals to help further our mission and unlock the potential of the awesome kids we serve every day. We offer a range of volunteer opportunities for adults of all ages.

If you would like to sign-up for a volunteer information session, please send an email to volunteers@betterboys.org
