|Past members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Elkhart County don’t have to lose that connection once they graduate from high school.
|The Clubs have launched an Alumni Association which will have a kick-off meeting on October 26.
|“The goal of this association is to make sure that people are able to capitalize on that connection they make at Club and carry that through with them for the rest of their lives,” said Launa Leftwich, chief operations officer for the Clubs.
|One out of every 16 living Americans attended a Boys & Girls Club. That’s why the local Clubs are reconnecting those members with others in the community. The Alumni Association will be a place where they can network with other adults, have fun at events and gatherings and find opportunities to mentor and impact the lives of current Club kids.
|“We want this to be connections they find exciting,” said Alumni Association Coordinator Hannah Pfaff. “There will be activities throughout the year and we hope that our alumni find reconnecting with Club a meaningful experience.”
|The Alumni Association isn’t just for past members of the Elkhart County Clubs. Anyone who has attended a Boys & Girls Club in other areas is also welcome to reconnect locally.
