If you assumed that the Boys & Girls Club of Springfield wasn’t ready to burst into the summer – especially as the global pandemic appears to near an end – well, check what its officials are about to roll out.
The Boys & Girls Club of Springfield is opening the O’Reilly Unit at Williams Elementary and is launching a new workforce readiness program.
And that’s in addition to all the other incredible work it does for local youths – which is why the Club is a great fit for the PGA Korn Ferry Tour’s Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper.
The tournament, set for July 16-26 in Springfield, has gifted nearly $17.4 million in its 32-year history.
Kids, teens, and their families need support now more than ever,” said Amber Alcorn, the Boys & Girls Club Marketing and Communications Assistant. “With the help of the Price Cutter Charity Championship, Boys & Girls Club will help reverse learning loss, restore a sense of safety, and continue giving kids something fun to look forward to this year.” Excited doesn’t even begin to describe the atmosphere among the club’s leadership, either. “Educational programming at the Club seeks to ensure all Club members graduate from high school on time, ready for a post-secondary education and a 21st Century career,” Alcorn said. “The Club does whatever it takes to make sure members are on the fast track to success.”
The O’Reilly Unit and the workforce readiness program are examples of the Club sticking to its mission, which is: To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
The PCCC has enabled the Club to thrive in numerous ways: “For 26 years, the PCCC has provided a funding stream for the Boys & Girls Club, which provides supplies and equipment for programs focusing on Academic Success, Good Character & Citizenship and Healthy Lifestyles,” said Jeff Long, Director of Operations. “PCCC’s funding allows Boys & Girls Club to provide a safe place for kids after school — a place where they can build friendships, have fun, explore new opportunities and celebrate accomplishments!”
