By setting young people on a path to a bright future, we ensure a more positive future for us all,”

Jaene Miranda, president and CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County, thanked the committee for its support.

The Boys & Girls Clubs provide services during non-school hours, as well as summer camp opportunities, to more than 8,500 boys and girls from ages 6 to 18 throughout the county. The clubs emphasize educational, vocational, social, recreational, health, leadership and character-building skills in a positive and safe atmosphere. Through quality programs, the club experience gives children the guidance they need to make a healthy transition from childhood to young adulthood.
