Club Leadership

From the Desk of David A. Smith

President and Club Alumnus,
Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City

There has been over a century of inspired action at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City. Thanks to our highly professional staff, deeply committed volunteers and generous donors, this year alone we will impact the lives of nearly 8,000 young people in our community.

Through it all, we learned that when the life of a young person is shaking, stability becomes an important asset. For many kids coming from disadvantaged circumstances, the Clubs have been an anchor for them. Simply put, that is because staff members care enough to give their very best each and every day.

I appreciate everything our staff and volunteers have done, are doing, and will do to ensure the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City is making a difference around our community and in the lives of young people. We simply wouldn’t be here today without their continued support.

It’s an honor to lead this great organization. As inspiring as our first century of work has been, I believe our best years are ahead of us.

David A. Smith, President & Club Alumnus
