Professional Development

In order to have the best programs and service to the youth and our community, staff development is key. Many opportunities are offered through Boys and Girls Club of America at minimal cost (i.e., $50.00 and/or hotel provided), however we must get staff to the training site, often in Atlanta. Therefore, travel costs range from $200 – $500, depending on location. Training opportunities offered are: Finance and HR Director’s Academy; Club Director’s Academy; Youth Development Professional Institute (line staff); Midwest Conference, Area Council, Youth of the Year, and so much more!
