BGCDA SUMMER FUN & EXPLORATION
BGCDA's 2019 Summer is off to a great start! Members at both clubs are exploring, having fun, and engaging in learning experiences. Chatham Club members spent a week during the month of June focused on exploring nature.

While visiting the Danville Science Center, members explored water quality along the River Walk Trail. Additional activities during the week included a visit from the Ward Burton Wildlife Foundation to share information about wildlife in the area as well as dissecting owl pellets! Science summer fun!
BGCDA FOSTER STREET CLUB & TEENS
TEENS SUMMER FOCUS
The summer has been a fast pace and productive summer filled with endless opportunities for the Clubs' Teen Members! Each Tuesday, a local entrepreneur from the community visits club where they speak about their personal success story

Many of the teenagers have million dollar ideas and thoughts but many of the presenters have shared the challenges of starting a successful business. Individuals from all walks of life and business principles have visited and it has proven successful. Three of BGCDA's teenagers are taking steps to launch their own businesses by January 2020! 

It is an exciting time to be a teen member at BGCDA as they are exploring skills and talents for a promising future. The concept is true “ Great Futures Start Here!
SUMMER FUN AT FOSTER ST. CLUB
The Foster Street Club's summer has been full of lots of fun with the staff rolling up their sleeves to go the extra mile every day to collaborations and summer partnerships! Youth from all over the United States participating in the Passport Mission work this summer have visited the Club weekly. They provide fun activities for the members as well as help to spruce up many areas of the grounds. BGCDA is grateful for all of its summer partners!
BGCDA ENJOYS SPONTANEOUS VISIT FROM INVESTOR
BGCDA is grateful for all of its investors and especially when they pay the Clubs a surprise visit! The Foster Street Club was surprised with a recent visit from Mr. Pat Daly. Mr. Daly had the opportunity to chat with Club members, and meet BGCDA's 2019 Youth of the Year, Ms. Jacanas Keene before she is off to Virginia Commonwealth University this fall.

BGCDA appreciates and welcomes all of its investors to stop by and check out the great things happening every day! Thanks to all who help make a difference every day in the lives of the kids in the community.
Wishing all a safe and wonderful Happy 4th of July from the board, staff and all the members of BGCDA!
