The Boys & Girls of Hawaii helps to make a positive impact on youths lives. I am an alumni of the Boys & Girls Club of Hawaii since I was in elementary to middle shool age. Having the club there was a place that I could go to, to keep me out of trouble. I love the gamesroom when I first came. I actually learned how to play billards there first and the staff was so inviting and caring.
I attended the Boys & Girls Club of Hawaii's Youth of the Year Luncheon this past weekend. What a treat to meet all of the finalists from the nine Clubhouses on Oahu and Kuaui. Each young person showed composure and poise while delivering their speeches to an audience of 350 community leaders, including Governor Abercrombie. The Boys & Girls Club deserves to be proud of the teen leaders coming out of their organization. These young people are a shining example of what happens in a Clubhouse every day. Congrats to all!
