Bernadette Shanahan, CEO of Boys and Girls Club of Camden County discussed this chapter of the well-known youth organization and its mission, to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.  Founded in 2001 through the efforts of philanthropist and Camden native Lewis Katz, the Camden County chapter serves kids ages six through high school from two locations with sports, homework help and tutoring, peer mentoring, STEM and STEAM classes, music programs, a drama program and a swimming pool.

We talked about Camden today, a large urban city divided by many highways, with few opportunities for kids to socialize.  While the city faces economic hardships, the neighborhoods are strong supportive communities that are invested in the Boys and Girls Club.  Through grants and donations programs are offered free to the youth.

We talked about ways to help, through donations and through volunteering, individuals and businesses can offer mentoring, job site visits, tutoring or office work.
