Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens has proclaimed 2023 the Year of the Youth, calling upon the community to rally around young people who are most in need. Sam Johnson, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta new Trustee Chair, shares his story on how giving back pushes us forward, and why he encourages corporate leaders to help provide more for our young people.
Every time I enter a Boys and Girls Club of Metro Atlanta (BGCMA), I am reminded of my own childhood. A young man raised in a single-parent household with no male role models, who could have been one decision away from becoming a statistic on the street
The Boys & Girls Club played an important role in my life. As a result, I am humbled to be named the new BGCMA Trustee Chair and look forward to collaborating with the community to address issues affecting our youth now and in the future. BGCMA is working with civic and business partners to help the 25 Club locations across ten metro Atlanta counties increase program access to students ages 6 to 18 by 2025. How can you help us achieve this goal?
Consider being a mentor, volunteering on a board for youth development, sponsoring a BGCMA summer camp, donating time or financial support to a worthy cause, or encouraging your company to collaborate with a nonprofit that supports children. Your contribution could be a critical game changer in helping us reach more kids, more opportunities, and more volunteers for great impact.
