We are so thankful to have received funds from All In Credit Union! With these funds, we were able to purchase brand new Kidzspace games to enhance teen involvement. Without All In Credit Union, this wouldn’t be possible. Thank you for the continued support for the youth in our community.
Last week we received a surprise donation from Gilland Chevrolet GMC/Gilland Ford. It’s because of the generosity of people like them, that we can do anything at all. For this, we THANK YOU and greatly appreciate your support.
The Youth of the Month Program is the premier recognition program of the Boys & Girls Club. Its purpose is to promote and celebrate the positive achievements of our members.

December Youth of the Month: Madalynn and Jayce
Our 2021 Youth of the Year, Paul Swanson, is a former “shy guy” who has blossomed at the Boys & Girls Club. He’s a friend to all, a peacemaker and negotiator, and an all-around level-headed teenager!
Paul is an Ozark native and a lover of the great outdoors! He has one younger brother and a large extended family scattered across the Southeastern U.S. Paul spends many of his weekends with one or another of his grandparents pursuing outdoor activities like hunting, fishing, kayaking, swimming, riding dirt bikes, and playing paintball, or learning his way around woodworking power tools! He also enjoys flying remote-controlled aircraft and is a member of the Academy of Model Aeronautics and the Northwest Florida Modelers, Inc. and shared his passion for model flight with our Club Kids during the summer program.
Paul is an Advanced Placement student at Carroll High School and a member of the JROTC Rifle Team. After school he manages our Kidz Café concessions and is a STEM Mentor, facilitating exploration and learning in Science, Technology, and Math for his fellow Club-members. When he’s not busy with those pursuits, Paul is always happy to help out wherever he’s needed around the Club.
In the future, Paul hopes to train in small engine repair, either in a degree program or an accredited Trade School, and someday run his own business.
