Who will be caring for my child/children? 
At the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Gaston, we seek to hire professional staff who are highly trained in this field.  Many of our staff have excellent educational backgrounds and hold Bachelor Degrees or Associate Degrees. 
We also recruit volunteers to tutor, feed, and mentor the boys and girls, as well as supervise the many events and activities that we plan for the children.  We are constantly seeking more volunteers to help in these areas, as it is our goal to have every event or activity well supervised so that your children are kept safe at all times.
Rest assured that your child will be taken care of and will be given the utmost support and love by our caring, adult staff and volunteers.
