Volunteer

Harlem Little League is an excellent example of the principle of “Ujima” (Collective Work and Responsibility). Harlem Little League is an all-volunteer organization. Without the help of parents and volunteers, there is no Harlem Little League. We rely on the generous support of family, friends and community members to keep our league strong and thriving. 

Volunteers fill many roles -- from our Board of Directors, to team managers, coaches and team parents -- and we invite you to share your talents with our community! Learn more about our volunteer support roles here. As a chartered member of Little League Baseball, all our volunteers are required to pass a background check each year. The purpose of these background checks is to protect our children by providing as safe an environment as possible. Therefore, failure to complete and submit the volunteer application form by those required to do so will result in that person being barred from participation in Harlem Little League.

ALL volunteers are required to submit a form each season. Even if you were cleared to volunteer in 2019, you must complete a new form for Spring 2020. Do not submit forms from year's past. If you complete the wrong form, you will be asked to resubmit. All new volunteers will be asked to provide a copy of a government-issued photo ID as well as their social security number to facilitate the background check process. Failure to do so will result in a delay in processing your application.

Direct all questions and email all forms to [email protected]. All information submitted is kept confidential. Should you have any concerns, reach out to our president, Stephanie Washington, at [email protected].

Important note: Incomplete forms will not be processed. Background checks CANNOT be left until the last minute. Background checks take several days to process. Volunteers who wish to be on the field for any given weekend must remit their volunteer form and identification no later than noon the Wednesday preceding. 

Fill out this form to begin the volunteer process:
