The Brigade Club of Rising Professionals (CORPs) is a civic group who’s members work with children at the Club and assist with fundraising, membership, special events, programming and community relations efforts.
C.A.M.P: Child & Adult Mentoring Program (C.A.M.P.) matches at-risk youth with positive adult mentors who spend a minimum of two hours per week with their match. C.A.M.P provides the opportunity to make a lasting difference in the lives of both children and mentors.

Other volunteer opportunities may include:
After-school game room and gym activities
Billiards, foosball, ping pong, board games, basketball, soccer, playground—adults are needed to help teach sportsmanship, skills and create fun for youth. Adult volunteers serve as positive role models providing one-on-one interaction with our Kids, an essential building block for healthy youth development.
Education Center and Computers
Homework assistance, tutoring, storytelling, word processing, Web design, Internet research, tech support, supervision, programming—parents are challenged to find time in their busy day to help their child with homework. Our Kids come to our Clubs looking for assistance and attention. We need volunteers to give each student the attention they deserve.
Flag football, softball, T-ball, basketball, swimming—coaching takes a special person who cares about youth and who can model teamwork, sportsmanship and the joy of being involved in a positive, healthy activity.
Cooking, art, dance, magic, gardening, environmental education—each of us has a special passion. Whether it’s kites, cupcakes, model airplanes, or growing award winning vegetables—one-time demonstrations or weekly classes—you choose the topic and the format! Don’t be shy, your hobby might be just what some child needs to inspire him or her.
Construction, painting, cleaning, landscaping, vehicle repair—each day, hundreds of kids pass through our doors. Our equipment and facilities show the wear and tear of active kids. If you have a skill or an interest in this area, your help can save the Club dollars better spent on providing activities for youth. Together we can create a safer environment that we can all be proud of!
We are always in need of administrative skills—light bookkeeping, filing, development assistance, scheduling, typing, reception, photo copying, supply orders.
