2018 Impact Report

Dear Friends,

2018 offered a number of challenges for our Boys & Girls Clubs in the Mississippi Delta. Thanks to the hard work of our staff and volunteers, I am happy to say that we have had one of the best years in our organization's history and the strongest year since I began serving as CEO.  Please take the time to consider the work we do by reviewing our 2018 Impact Statement.

Here are a few additional 2018 highlights I'd like to share:

  • We have seen increases in overall membership, especially teen membership, as well as an increase in Average Daily Attendance.
  • Cordarius Dorsey from our Lexington Club was our organization's very first Mississippi Youth of the Year.  Cordarius went on to place 2nd in the entire Southeast Region.
  • Our Chief Financial Officer, June Crow, was named the BGCA National Administrative Professional of the Year at the Boys & Girls Clubs National Conference in San Diego.
  • Once again, our Optimal Club Experience rating is nearly 20% higher than the national average, according to the National Youth Outcomes Initiative conducted annually by Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
  • We successfully completed a merger with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Northwest Mississippi.
  • We continue to develop new and innovative programming at our clubs.
  • All of our club members passed their Third Grade reading examination.
  • The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Mississippi Delta will be hosting the 2019 Mississippi Youth of the Year Program in Clarksdale.

I am thankful to our dedicated staff, but most of all I want to thank the families and children who choose to participate in our after-school and out-of-school programming. Our clubs are open to all children between the ages of 6-18.

Please contact me if you would be interested in helping us serve the children of the Delta. Volunteers and donations are always welcome.

Sincerely,

David Dallas, CEO
