Last week at the Alabama Boys & Girls Clubs Hall of Fame & Awards Luncheonn, our local Boys & Girls Club was recognized!
First, we received the Good Character & Leadership Award for our Jr. Future Leaders Program (AKA Jr. Staff). The Jr. Future Leaders Program is not a traditional program. Members learn skills on how to run and operate a business through a unique “business opportunity”, The Kidz Café. Not only are Jr. Future Leaders learning how to manage and operate a business, but they are learning the importance of giving back to the community. They have hosted their own food bag giveaway, volunteered with the Mary Hill Family Service and helped with planting trees at Oben Everett Park for Arbor Day. This past year, they donated $1,000 to the Wiregrass United Way. They have also purchased game arcades and tables and chairs for the Club. We are very proud of our Jr. Staff!!
Next, All In Credit Union received the CARE Award. This award is given to an individual or business not directly affiliated with a Club organization but has provided outstanding in-kind or direct support to their local Boys & Girls Clubs. All In Credit Union has done so much for our Boys & Girls Club (so much we can't list it all). Each year, an employee from All In teaches the Bee the Boss Program, which has become a staple program in the Club!! All In also hosted their Summer Financial Camp at the Club this past Summer. All In employees also volunteered by helping us paint the Glenway location, helping yearly at our Annual Steak & Burger Dinner, and even hosting a school supply drive to help with back to school. We are incredibly grateful for the partnership with All In Credit Union. The BGCSEAL also won the Alabama Academic Success Award last year for the Bee the Boss Program.
Club Executive Director, Jessica Moore, and Board Vice President, Lou Hennies, attended the Boys & Girls Clubs of Alabama Statewide Strategic Plan Meeting in Birmingham with Boys & Girls Club of America's CEO, Jim Clark. A lot of great things were discussed, and we are excited to work with other Clubs and Boards across the state to help make incredible things happen for our youth!! #GreatFuturesStartHere
Olivia Smith, won the Youth Development Professional Award at the Alabama All-Staff Conference held in Birmingham, AL. Olivia has been with the Boys & Girls Club of Ozark for a little over 23 years. Help us congratulate Mrs. Olivia!

The Jr. Staff/Kidz Cafe made a $1,000 donation to the Wiregrass United Way at the Annual Kick off Event.
