Testimonials

The Boys & Girls Club played a significant role in assisting me in moving forward and being successful. With the support and motivation of my foster parent, my teachers, and the staff at the Club, I have transformed into a new person who has the desire and ability to go to college and seek a career in social work.
Kim Hines, Whatcom County 2014 Youth of the Year
“I’ve journeyed through elementary, middle, and high school facing many obstacles. I’m near college graduation and I always credit the Boys & Girls Club for supporting me through my adolescence and as a young adult. I cannot picture where I would be in my life without the life lessons and experiences I’ve gained being a Club member.”
Vang Le, Whatcom County & Washington State 2010 Youth of the Year
“Everything you’ve seen or heard about me began with lessons I learned to live by at the Club.”
“Like many Club alumni, I can honestly say I don’t know where I’d be today without the Club. Thanks to Boys & Girls Clubs from the bottom of my heart, for all you have done for me, and for so many others.”
“I always go back to lessons learned at the Club. We discovered there was something higher than ourselves, and that giving back to others was what really mattered.”

Our Youth of the Year sure knows how to make us proud! Not only did Tina conquer her fear to give an amazing speech in front of a packed room at yesterday's Youth of the Year dinner, she also had this to say after the experience: "Even though I didn't win Youth of the Year, I had the experience to hang out with new people that I would have not met before. It's not all about winning but it's all about the experience and that you made it. I truly love everyone of the youths that helped and tried their hardest to get where they are now. Everyone has a future and I know that each one of yours are bright! All of you will or have made the world or community better! Congratulations to Justice, I know that you will make a huge impact to lots! We may go our own ways but we are all family by heart I hope we all keep in touch and I hope for the best of lucks in everyone's future!" Thank you to Boys & Girls Clubs Washington State Association for putting on such an inspirational night! ... See MoreSee Less
