BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS OF GREATER MEMPHIS Reviews
I have been working with the Boys and Girls Club for the past several years and have been so blessed by the work they do for these precious children. They truly have a servants heart for these kids and anytime I stop by there everyone has a smile. You can tell they are devoted to serving their community by offering opportunities to children that wouldn't receive them any other way. I hear stories from these kids saying they never would have never had the hope of graduating high school without the encouragement and programs offered from the Boys and Girls Club. I am so grateful to this organization and their staff for all that they do!! Angie Breland

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
I have been with the Hickory Hill (Bernal E. Smith) club for about a year and can not think of a better way to serve to the city of Memphis. It is true that our children are our future, and the Boys and Girls clubs of Greater Memphis provide an environment that cultivates learning. The most recent statistics (2009) that I've seen show the graduation rate for Boys and Girls Clubs seniors at 98.8% versus 61% for Memphis City Schools. Education is a key part to success later in life, and these kids will be ready for the challenge.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
not just the statistics but also in the kids themselves. The 2011 Youth of the Year, Shannon Wright, was as impressive a 17 year old that you will ever meet. She was confident and well spoken and was thankful for being part of her club.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
expand it. Every child in the city should have the opportunity to be a part of the Boys and girls clubs, and that takes money.
