Make an Impact


Who we are and what we believe is entirely based on who we have serving at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Orange Coast. Being a mentor is a calling and a privilege--not a job. We have become one of the premier Boys & Girls Clubs in the United States because of our commitment to excellence and our standards for our Mentor Professionals. We proudly invest in training and professional development as part of our commitment to quality. We are constantly developing talent internally and are always excited to meet new people who are passionate about mentoring and impacting the lives of those we serve.

Our dedicated team of Mentor Professionals build meaningful relationships with the youth and families we serve as part of our long-term strategy to ensure every Club Member has the support system he or she needs to reach his or her full potential. As a Mentor Professional, you will work daily at one our locations during after-school hours, when our Club Members are most vulnerable. We expect every Mentor Professional to share our values and our passion to impact the lives of those we serve.

In a recent satisfaction survey of our Mentor Professionals, we found the following key outcomes:

91% of Mentor Professionals are happy with their direct supervisor

The BGC Central OC recruits and hires Mentor Professionals year-round. Mentor Professionals work Monday through Friday during after-school hours, and have a salary range between $10-12 per hour. As a minimum, we require 48 units of college credit (2 years) and prefer candidates with a passion for and interest in a career in youth development, education, counseling, or specialized area that aligns with our programs.
