Review for Boys & Girls Clubs Of Greater Memphis, Memphis, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

Role:  Volunteer & I serve on the Hickory Hill (Bernal E. Smith) Club board and was one of the club co-chairs for the most recent Steak N Burger event which is the largest annual fundraiser for the clubs.
