Twenty one years ago the Boys & Girls Clubs of Dundee Township was formed to give kids an opportunity. It has been the dedication of our leaders- full and part time employees that have created a mentor relationship with thousands of kids over the past two decades. Nourishing character and inspiring potential has given The Club a base of current Alumni who are now employees.
On February 13th we convened our first meeting of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Dundee Township Alumni Association. The group invited was our 21 employees that have gone through our Club. Their goal is to reach out to their peers to help grow the organization. A goal of 100 members is desired by the end of the year.
The vision of the Alumni Association is to grow an organization of BGCDT Alumni that will enhance the mission of BGCDT.
A formal organization needs to be formed. By doing so they can reach some of their objectives in encouraging younger family and friends to be members of the Club, assist with BGCDT events such as the track meet, Youth of the Year, Golf Outing and Gala. They will also host some of their own events. Ultimately they will provide feedback to the Board and also become a source of future board members. The more we can continue to enrich the lives of our Alumni the more they can continue to lead fulfilling lives.
