REQUIREMENTS

Application and Membership Fees

  • Each time a teen member or their parent submits an application (beginning of the school year and beginning of summer), an application fee is due to BGC.
  • There are no monthly membership fees for teens.

Community Service:
One event per month

  • Since there are no monthly membership fees for teen members, they are required to earn their membership by completing one volunteer activity per month.

  • If a teen is unable to complete one volunteer activity offered by BGC during a month, the next month they must complete two volunteer activities to maintain membership.

  • To maintain membership, teens must participate in at least two of our offered programs per year.
