I have worked for Boys & Girls Clubs for 30 years. I have seen many success stories and can not name another organization that does what Boys & Girls Clubs can or attempt to do. Our kids are provided with quality programs served by quality staff.

The Great!

I have seen many success stories throughout the 30 years I have been with this organization. I have seen kids come in with little self esteem and leave as a Youth of the Year. It is amazing what Boys & Girls Clubs can do.

Always strive to keep quality employees so our kids can have quality services. This is a must to make us successfull and to provide our kids with what they deserve.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Memphis reach so many kids and families each day. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Memphis is the Salvation, we take our kids out of diseasters each day in their homes, BGCM is the person there for their pain and hurt that they face each day. BGCM is the religious place for kids, we teach them right from wrong. BGCM is the Education place for our kids, we stress the importance of Education each day in our Clubs, we graduate 97.6%. We are family for most of these kids, we are their mother, father, brother and sister. We do so much, but we need to reach more. We reach 7300 a year, we need to reach all the kids out there that need us the most. BGCM is here for all those kids and we will continue to reach more.

I enjoy seeing so many kids graduate. So many families life turn around. I had one little boy who came to me with so much anger. He hit me in my stomache one day and threaten to kill me. I told him that he couldn't hurt me. Long story short, each day I would work with this kid and told him that he was a great kids and that I loved him with all my heart. That kid turned a 360 in three weeks and is now one of the best kids at the Club. (He was angry because he lost both parents at the same time!).

I would beg for more money every day from those who are blessed to give to this organization. We can do so much more to bring more kids off the street. We can turn bullies into angels. We take students making failing grades into graduating. I would not make changes in the organization, but in my community and country.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Memphis has provided support & leadership for youth since 1962. The impact has reached generations of thousands of our citizens. The organization stays true to its mission: “To inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.” Just ask one of the alumni.

For 32 years I have worked with the members of BGCM. I have seen these young members grow up become productive members of society and raise their familes to do the same.

The only change I would make is to serve more members which is tied to additional funding.
