Partners in education
Interested in supporting education and opportunities for youth?
- The purpose of the BGC Partners in Education (PIE) is to collaborate with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Springfield to further common goals, and to provide support for higher education for youths of the Club.
- The cost of college tuition continues to be out of reach for many, if not most, of our Boys & Girls Clubs kids. It is through the Youth of the Year scholarship, dual credit scholarships, ACT and other testing and the addition of “gap” grants, that we can offer some hope of a higher education to many of our deserving youth.
- The BGC Partners hosts an Annual Run/Walk to help fund a $12,000 college scholarship to each Youth of the Year winner. The Run/Walk is the primary fundraiser for the BGC Partners’ effort to support Great Futures.
BGC Partners in Education invites you to be a part of a group that supports the futures of at-risk youth.
- Dues are only $10 per year and meetings are held monthly. To join, contact Debbie at 417.862.9249 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
