It's truly an honor to devote my time, treasure and talent to our PeeDee Boys and Girls Clubs as the positive results are evident not only in the impressive statistics but also in the hopeful faces of the remarkable children we serve everyday! From Mentoring and Healthy Habits Programs to Technology Labs and Job Corps, we are preparing our future leaders to succeed in today's economy. The Staff tirelessly and selflessly serves those who need us most...our kids!

I have been a Boys and Girls Club Board member for just over a year now and the experience has been both purposeful and rewarding as we strive to fulfll the club's critical mission of inspiring and enabling all young people throughout the Pee Dee to become productive and caring citizens! For those who need us most to have a safe and caring "home away from home" to go to is not only vital it can be life changing, and sometimes even life saving!

My experience with this organization was very meaningful and educational. The staff was very helpful and engaging,which means alot when you are leaving your children with strangers. I felt a sense of relief knowing that they were cared for and safe. Now I'm a board member, who wants to offer back to my community because I know what impact it had on my family when my children attended. As a single parent with three children, it offered my children a positive outlook on life. The Boys and Girls Club changes the lives of children and is much needed in all communities.

Boys and Girls Club of the Pee Dee is a standout organization in the region. Many young lives are positively impacted by their involvement with the Club. The children and staff all have a sense of pride, and the club works hard to build character, work ethic, and a mindset of service to the community.

Boys and Girls Club of the Pee Dee go to great lengths to invest in the future of the young people that they serve. From academic coaching and assistance to helping young people to navigate the societal challenges that they face, these club leaders not only instruct they lead by example. They are making a significant difference in the future of these young folks because they genuinely care about the future of those they are serving.

Of all the organizations in many communities across the U.S., that attempt to address issues of poverty, crime, early childhood education, positive life skills, etc....Nobody does it better than Boys and Gilrs Clubs!The commitment from the staff to the children in our community to do and offer so much for their future success, is in my opinion, simply unmatched by any other organization or group.....Their dedication, energy, unselfishish devotion and use of limited resources are making a positive impact and changing lives not only of the children who come to Boys and Gilrs Clubs of the Pee Dee but also the lives of their families and their community....

Would you volunteer for this group again?

The Boys and Girls Clubs of the Pee Dee Area make a difference in the lives of many at-risk children, and by helping them, the clubs help families and the community. The clubs are a safe after-school environment and offer much more than play time. A caring staff of passionate professionals helps students with their homework and computer skills while building character and self-esteem. The club's mission is "to inspire and enable all young people from throughout the Pee Dee Area, especially those who need us most, to become productive, responsible, and caring citizens." This isn't just talk. It's action.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Pee Dee Area is definitely a leader in the non-profit sector. Management is professional, responsive, timely, and very frugal in use of their monetary resources.

The executive director is hands-on, genuine, and mission-oriented. This management style is embraced by all staff.

We work with lots of non-profits, and this organization is definitely top-notch.

A board member for over 10+ years and Treasure 6 years - have viewed first hand the impact and influence that the Club along with its directors makes. Educational and personal skills that follow the boys and girls club members are so valuable. It is so heart warming, when one of the former members comes back to the club or an event and you learn that he or she is an engineer, attorney, banker, etc. The BGCPDA makes an impact!
