It’s not a job. It’s a calling.

At the heart of every Club are caring mentors dedicated to making a difference for kids and teens. Club professionals bring out the best in kids and teens by understanding where they come from and creating safe, inclusive and fun environments for youth to explore their interests.

At Clubs across the Carolina's, more than 3,000 professional staff work to create the best possible experiences to support the great futures of America’s youth.

Club professionals are trained in youth development staff practices that provide young people with high-quality experiences that support their success. Staff create opportunities for youth to develop a sense of belonging – recognizing their contributions and accomplishments, and helping them build relationships with their peers.

Staff also use youth-centered approaches to reframe conflict; acknowledge and help young people identify their feelings and see the connection between their emotions, behaviors and consequences; and find their own solutions.

Below you will find the Boys & Girls Club Employee of the month, or what we call, "Doing The Most Good Award". These nominations are done by Club members, parents, voluntters, other staff, and Corps Officers.
