Leadership Volunteer Opportunity

Kevin Patrick, Class 17

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale is looking for a Board of Governor to join their team. The Clubs provide a positive, safe and fun environment to help Valley youth ages 6 to 18 develop qualities needed to reach their full potential. Today, the Clubs serve nearly 16,000 children and teenagers and offer more than 100 youth development programs to ensure their futures are bright.

Each Board of Governor is considered part of a network of working volunteers. The individual will serve on a standing committee which supports the organization with respect to facilities, programs, marketing, or human resources. Additionally, the Board of Governor will participate in at least one of the annual fundraising events. As well, through active support of the BGCGS fundraising efforts, the Board of Governor agrees to meet a $10,000 minimum annual financial support.

At a minimum, the Governor is expected to make a $1,000 leadership gift to the BGCGS Annual “Angels for Kids” Campaign.  Other financial support to meet the financial requirement are: support at special events, in-kind gifts, donations to the Foundation or Auxiliary, gifts or services that would otherwise be included in the BGCGS operating budget.

We are looking for excellent community partners, individuals who believe in the advocacy of the mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale and its youth development philosophy.  If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity to join a strong and dedicated board, please contact Kevin Patrick at kpatrick@cox.net or (602) 573-6031.

2011 in review

The WordPress.com stats helpers prepared a 2011  blog report for Scottsdale Leadership.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,300 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.
