The Boys & Girl's Club (East Dallas location) permits an atmosphere of theft and lacks integrity and morals as well as breed an environment of irresponsibility, from the President, Charles English, down to his staff. There is no location of which children can store their personal belongings in the after-school program, but there is a Teen Monitor who is an adult present. Yet, both a cell phone and pricy athletic shoes has been removed from my son's book bag on their watch, while their monitor was present, and their response is 'too bad, we don't have the time to investigate and we don't care to, your son should have kept up with his things". They lied about the surveillance camera working (it does not, this was finally revealed to the Detective on this case). This President and its staff are incompetent in not only addressing this issue, he also lacks understanding and expression of the Mission statement of this organization overall and actually, his actions and behavior gives the Boys & Girls club a BAD NAME!

I've personally experienced the worst results of this organization in their lack of respect and accountability in creating and supporting an atmosphere where thefts can happen.

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

Communicate when thefts occur and speak with all teens and their parents to identify who took the belongings. There is a teen sign in sheet, so there would be a meeting. I would also send out notifications encouraging all parents to have their teens leave their belongings at home and not bring them to the club. I would be proactive about resolving this growing theft exercise instead of ignoring the issue because in addressing the issues would expose my incompetence as a Leader of this chapter of the org
