Take the Lead on Transforming Young Lives
Our volunteer youth mentors are the driving force for good behind BCM’s powerful mission. When you volunteer with us, you’ll have the opportunity to help under-resourced youth realize their potential.
There are three unique volunteer roles at BCM:
Week-long Expedition Mentors
San Francisco, Denver Metro, Miami, Boston, Minneapolis, Portland, Seattle
Our week-long backpacking expeditions are a challenging, adventurous way to positively impact teenagers’ lives. Volunteers are expected to hike or paddle up to eight miles per day while leading youth with limited outdoor experience. All week-long programs run during the summer months.
Overnight Camp Volunteers
Colorado and Minnesota
Our Overnight Camp Volunteers are responsible for mentoring 8-to-12-year-olds on their very first camping experience. These volunteers help lead all camp activities, assist with meal times and serve as positive examples and mentors to BCM’s youngest participants.
Front Country Volunteers
All regions, including remote opportunities
Planning and fundraising for BCM is a year-round effort. Our Front Country Volunteers assist with in-office responsibilities, expedition gear management and special events. These positions are usually offered in our regional locations, but remote volunteer opportunities for some projects are available.
