CONT. FROM PAGE 38 In addition to Romero, many club members are making outstanding achievements with the help of the staff at BGCLC. Ian Dreitz won the Wellington 2010 Youth of the Year. “He is an outstanding young man who demonstrates his caring abilities and shows every member they can count on him for help and support,” says Wright. Jose Hernandez was honored with a $4,900 scholarship, part of a 9Kids Who Care Award. Pam Rud, unit director at the Fort Collins club says, “For the Latino kids in particular, he’s a big role model. They look up to him as the kind of person they want to be.” He has been accepted to three colleges. Davey Nashelsky, the Fort Collins 2010 Youth of the Year, has served as a Tech Center and Recording Studio Coordinator, and Junior Staff. Wright says he learned the entire process of the Eagles Nest Recording Studio at the BGCLC right after it was developed. A Fort Collins Youth of the Year, Robin Klitch received over $20,000 in scholarships and was accepted to her top three college choices. “She was a great role model for younger members and wants to work with youth because of her experiences with the club,” says Wright. Sam Delude was voted Youth of the Month six times. He received a full Daniel’s Fund Scholarship with help from the staff during the application and interview process. “He is now a freshman at the University of New Mexico and still checks in with staff to report his progress,” says Wright. Wright says the mission of BGCLC is to provide safe places, caring professionals and proven programs to help youths, like the ones above, reach their full potential. BGCLC has units in Wellington, Fort Collins and Loveland. For $5 per year, youth ages 6 to 18 can be at the club 25 hours a week during school terms and extra hours during school breaks. BGCLC’s staff is trained regularly in programs that help youth in the arts, character and leadership, education, technology, career development, health and life skills, and sports/fitness/recreation. Through the generosity of individuals, corporations and foundations who share the belief in the potential of all girls and boys regardless of their circumstances, Wright says BGCLC helps hundreds of kids become caring, successful adults.
