BGCDT Club members from Meadowdale Elementary School recently held their Graduation Day Ceremony for completing a very unique program offered at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Dundee Township, called “Money Island”. The “Money Island” Program, sponsored by First American Bank, is an interactive (computer based) financial literacy program that educated our Club members on the basics of savings, spending and investing…all through a fictional character that the Club members can create.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Dundee Township recently partnered with Feed My Starving Children (Schaumburg, IL), as a group of eleven (11) “Smart Girls” volunteered an entire afternoon of community service. The “SMART Girls” program is a National Boys & Girls Clubs of America program that focuses on the development of young women in the Boys & Girls Club Movement. The program involves weekly lessons on self-esteem, health and wellness, friendship, life skills and community service.
