What’s your Club story?

“Boys and Girls Club found me, and I am so grateful! Meeting with the Board, I understood the mission of Boys and Girls Club and the opportunity we have to improve the lives of generations of folks here in the Roanoke Valley and beyond. I was immediately energized and motivated by the challenge to interrupt generational poverty and to change the futures for hundreds if not thousands of students, in partnership with our existing organizations and stakeholders, for the benefit of the entire region.”



How would you describe the Club in one word?”

“Life-changing (is that one word?) “



What’s your hope for the future of Boys & Girls Club?

“That all students have access to the resources they need to pursue happy and fulfilled lives.”
