The Magic Sauce
Daneisha, has a great future ahead of her. This talented high school senior has college plans on her horizon. But two years ago she was hanging out with the wrong crowd and getting into trouble. That’s when her mother enrolled her in the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City.
There, Daneisha tasted the “magic sauce” – the special adult to Club member relationship that keeps kids coming back to the Clubs. From sports and technology to music production and the arts, Club members have a host of programming opportunities available to them. Getting children and youth “in the game” and developing their talents to their full potential is what the Clubs do on a daily basis.
Cameron Jones is not your typical college student. He’s grown up in the toughest neighborhoods and he’s been through more hard times than most youth have to experience in a lifetime; but that’s what makes him stronger. At a young age, Cameron joined the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City, J&D Wagner Unit, a home away from home. From learning how to swim to preparing for high school graduation, Cameron relied on the life changing programs and support of Club staff to help build a great future for himself and for his family. Now a student at Metropolitan Community College, Cameron credits the Clubs with instilling in him the values of hard work and self-confidence. His story started at Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City and now he is fully prepared to write the next chapter.
