Review for Boys & Girls Clubs of the Mississippi Delta, Yazoo City, MS, USA
I interned with the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Mississippi Delta in 2011. I was able to learn so much from Mr. Deming, his staff, and the fantastic volunteers. Most of the clubs are open after school from 3 to 7 PM and during the summer months from 8 am to 5 PM, Monday through Friday. Their staff members are trained youth development professionals who provide a safe and positive place for kids to learn and grow. Activity fees are kept low to ensure that all children will have access to our club site. The annual activity fee for each child is just $25!
Everyone works very hard to keep the clubs in the delta open; to keep our children in school and becoming great responsible people with a dynamic future. I was so impressed with my experience that I continued to volunteer as a Pro Bon Consultant for the organization. My next step was to help the advisory committees as much as I could with research on how best to raise funds. Well, I’m still conducting research and now I’m training boards on the best fundraising practices. Also, I knew that we need to establish a club in my home town of Tchula. Our Proposed Tchula Boys and Girls Club Steering Committee are now raising funds for our own club in 2013. Yes!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Add a new club in Tchula, Mississippi. We in the Tchula area community are currently working diligently to establish a boys and girls club in our home town.
