What do all of these people, and millions more throughout America, have in common? They are all alumni of Boys & Girls Clubs. While many Club alumni have achieved particular distinction in fields such as entertainment, business, politics and sports, the average alumnus is not famous. Most have achieved success by getting an education, raising a family, serving their country, pursuing a career or supporting the community.
The “COME ON HOME” alumni theme promotes the idea of giving back while appealing to the warm memories and deep appreciation expressed by many alumni about their Club experiences.
Way that you can get involved may include;
Attend Social Events to reconnect alumni with their Club and other Alumni.
Raising funds for a specific project or event to benefit members from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Union County.
Providing volunteer leadership to local Clubs and statewide events.
Serving as spokespeople and ambassadors for the Boys & Girls Club and assist in spreading the word about the good works of the Club.
A recent survey of Boys & Girls Clubs Alumni completed by Harris Interactive, documents the impact that Boys & Girls Clubs have on its members. Children have found a better life and a brighter future thanks to an empowering, inspiring resource right in their neighborhood – the local Boys & Girls Club. The survey states that 57% of alumni said the Club saved their life and 81% of alumni stated that their participation in the Club helped them develop a sense of responsibility to give back to their community.
