The Club motivated me and made me want to strive to get all good grades.
All of my struggles in life simply disappeared the moment I entered the Club.
The Boys and Girls Club has been one of, if not the biggest contributor to my life and the young man I have become.
The Boys and Girls Club had transformed me from an awkward, young ‘new kid’ to a confident, passionate leader.
The Boys and Girls Club is more than an after school program for me, it is my family.
