Mentor - At Risk Youth (July-December 2018)
Council: 334 - AUGUSTA
The Boys & Girls Club of Augusta (BGCAM) is the Augusta area’s only free, community-based program for teens. We provide programming focused on suspension reduction, arts, sports and character development. Our facility is housed at the Buker Community Center in Augusta, and services are provided after school, during school vacations and on most holidays. Our participants hail primarily from the Augusta School District. Many are of low socioeconomic status, and often lack strong, supportive family ties and have few positive social advocates. As a mentor I work with the teenagers on various topics including job skills and leadership. I meet with the kids on a monthly basis and also serve on the Board of Directors for the Club.
