Jr. Staff Program for the Summer

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Bellevue will be looking for energetic and outgoing teen volunteers that want to work in our Jr. Staff program this summer.  This is a great opportunity for teens entering 9-12 grade to earn their community service hours while having fun at the Club.  The program has components of customer service, community service, and on-the-job work experience as a summer camp counselor in training.
To get started you must register for select weeks of the Jr. Staff Program at the site of your choosing. Registration will open March 25, 2019! 

Every Monday morning teens will receive training at The CLUB Teen Center before heading to their designated site. Tuesday through Thursday they will go directly to their sites. On Fridays they will return to the CLUB Teen Center for some more training and evaluation of the week. Teens must commit to a two-week block over the summer.  Call Teen Center for more info (425) 429 3203 or email at Matt
