On Friday Sept 28th, a group of eight delegates from Yemen, an interpreter, and Dr. Hannaway (chair of Colorado Springs Committee of International Visitors) visited the Tutt Club to learn more about the Boys & Girls Club of the Pikes Peak Region. Our guests are part of an organization called International Visitor Leadership Program. They were interested in learning about why volunteerism is important in our clubs and about the process of becoming a volunteer.
Myles gave them a club tour and explained the variety of programs that we run at our clubs. Then, e introduced our Youth of the Year, Cameron, and he talked about our teen programs as well as the two scholarships he earned with BGCPPR-YOY and Daniel’s Fund.
It was a great opportunity to share what we do as a youth development organization and to emphasize how important volunteerism is at our clubs and in our society!
