Review for Bonnie Boys Club, Inc. dba, The Bonnie Youth Club, Brooklyn, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I too am one of the great success stories of the Bonnies. Growing up in the crime and drug infested streets of Flatbush Brooklyn in the mid 80's. The Bonnies was a safe have and beacon of light for young men and women who desired athletic competition through baseball and a way out of the pitfalls for urban youth that was rampant throughout the US during that era. It for me personally was exactly what I needed because it provided guidance, structure, discipline and values. It helped provide peace of mind for my mother who was hard at work raising myself and sisters as a struggling single mother. My coaches throughout my years became the male role models and mentors I needed and their guidance and direction proved invaluable. Through my affiliation with this organization I was able to become a very productive member of my communities in education and bred to be a leader. The greatest value of this organization are the volunteers and coaches who work tirelessly to ensure the youth of the communities in which they serve are given guidance, advice and the greatest instruction possible to see that player be a future success. I urge you to please confirm this by going anywhere in NYC and and the Eastern seaboard with any kind of Bonnie clothing and you will meet a person or people with fond memories and gratitude to the organization for all they have done. You will also see those same people who have continually come back to the organization with their sons, daughters, and friends as well as volunteering their time much in the same way as the people who were there for them in their time with the organization.
