Boys & Girls Clubs of Indianapolis, Inc.
July 28, 2011
I am a volunteer at the Wheeler-Dowe Club and can say that I have seen a drastic change in several our youth’s lives since I started volunteering 3 years ago. I have watched kids who seemed lost find their paths at Boys and Girls Clubs of Indianapolis. Most of these kids had been given up by their teachers and communities and had no where left to turn. Because of the work done at Boys and Girls Clubs of Indianapolis I have watched over 15 kids this past school year go from wanting or being forced to drop out to finishing high school and now looking for college opportunities. It has been such a wonderful feeling working with these kids.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Watching kids accept their college diploma's instead of failing out of school. Nothing has touched my heart like watching one of these kids grab their diploma from high school as they walk across the stage.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would add more clubs so they can help more kids. They work well with so many kids it would be great if they had more space to provide assistance for more kids.
