The Boys & Girls of Hawaii helps to make a positive impact on youths lives. I am an alumni of the Boys & Girls Club of Hawaii since I was in elementary to middle shool age. Having the club there was a place that I could go to, to keep me out of trouble. I love the gamesroom when I first came. I actually learned how to play billards there first and the staff was so inviting and caring.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

many different ways.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make sure there was always this place for many youths to come to go ahead and participate in.

I've seen youth that were once engaging in risky behaviors, and close to dropping out of school, realize that they can succeed. With support from the Boys and Girls Club of Hawaii, these same youths are now in the process of finishing up high school, or are getting their GEDs. Because of BGCH, they're realizing their full potential.

I think that there is always something to be done, but I strongly believe that both the organization's mission, and vision, are being executed. Please support this organization by making donations, or volunteering.

I attended the Boys & Girls Club of Hawaii's Youth of the Year Luncheon this past weekend. What a treat to meet all of the finalists from the nine Clubhouses on Oahu and Kuaui. Each young person showed composure and poise while delivering their speeches to an audience of 350 community leaders, including Governor Abercrombie. The Boys & Girls Club deserves to be proud of the teen leaders coming out of their organization. These young people are a shining example of what happens in a Clubhouse every day. Congrats to all!

In meeting the teens involved at the Boys & Girls Club I am impressed with their level of community involvement, determination to go on to higher education, and devotion and loyalty to their Clubs and the staff.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide additional funding so more young people could be reached and provided hope and opportunity to make the most of themselves.
