This holiday season we're thinking about you and how grateful we are for your support.
When kids have Clubs, and Clubs have you, challenging times can lead to great futures!
With your help, hundreds of teens are starting their great futures in our popular Teen Workforce Readiness program. You would be inspired by the number of teens who want to work, pursue their careers, and have a passion to serve.
One of our outstanding teen Club members, 15-year-old Sloan; mentors new Club members, and has found a voice to be a leader at the Boys & Girls Club. For Sloan, finding a voice and a safe place to belong is a huge accomplishment. Sloan and her family have had their challenges. Her father has struggled to hold consistent employment and her mother has battled drug addiction. At 15, Sloan has dealt with more adversity than many adults and has had to grow up fast.
Here’s why we're so grateful for you and your donations…Sloan now has a place to be a teen every day after school where she can learn and grow. Sloan has even been able to earn a stipend while preparing for her future, through our Into the Future Workforce Readiness program.
There are more than 37,600 children in our community just like Sloan who need a support system. Help with homework. A kind and encouraging word from someone who believes in them. These are the moments that add up to building great futures for young people, especially those who need us most.
Please take a moment today to send your gift. Their next great moment can start with you.
Happy holidays to you and yours!
