Here we recognize the people who make our mission possible. If you or your company would like to become a Boys & Girls Clubs of Athens supporter, please email Sterling@GreatFuturesAthens.com. You may give a one-time gift, or you may become a part of our Athens Business Coalition.
Based on the success that has been achieved with elementary school aged members, we have initiated the Graduate Great! Program designed to target members in the transitional period from sixth to ninth grade. These transition years are not only the make-or-break years for our members academically, but also a time when many of them will be making decisions with lifelong consequences—decisions about drugs, sexuality, criminal activity, and education. We must not only seek to ensure that our members remain on track for graduation but also develop good character and make healthy decisions.
The Athens Business Coalition, founded in 2014 by The Boys & Girls Clubs of Athens and its Board of Directors, plays the leading role in making the Graduate Great! program possible. The funds received through this partnership will provide the Boys & Girls Club of Athens the resources needed to hire staff, purchase supplies, and pay for activities. To become a member of the Athens Business Coalition, please an inquiry to Sterling@GreatFuturesAthens.com.
