A Message from the
Executive Director

I can never repay the Boys & Girls Club movement for the programs that I received as a child. The Club was my home away from home, where I received the guidance to become a responsible and caring person. I only hope that I can make a difference in young lives as the staff did for me. There is nothing more important than giving all youth a chance to be a productive citizen.
