From Club member to Youth Development Professional, Chastity Morrissette is a Walton County Boys & Girls Club alumnus who is deeply committed to ensuring all youth reach their greatest potential.
During her seven years as a Club member of WCBGC, Morrissette shares she was able to find her “passion for helping others find their strengths” as well as her desire to pursue a degree in early childhood education.
She’s been a Youth Development Professional for over 11 years at WCBGC and recently completed her degree.
Lynn E. Hill, WCBGC Director, shared that “her ability to come full circle from Club member, to Club Youth Development Professional and now educator in the community demonstrates the power of Boys & Girls Clubs active member participation.”
Morrissette echoes Mr. Hill’s sentiments on the Club’s life changing impacts.
“The Club has continued to make an impact on my life growing up. I saw how much individuals cared for me here as a member and I wanted to be able to do the same for a child who currently attends,” she shared. “Being able to provide that care here has been immeasurable.”
Hill adds that this WCBGC alumni also shows how the Club is an organization that will walk alongside youth even in adulthood as alumni.
“We are here for our youth throughout the different seasons of their life,” he shared. “That’s why we try to cultivate strong relationships without alumni members, so they continue to visit us and sow seeds back into the Club. It’s always a joy to see Chastity do just that for our present members.”
