Walton County Boys & Girls Club

Lynn E. Hill

Club Director

I often speak with the Board of Directors, Staff, Parents, and especially the Members, of the idea of developing a positive and network within our community of Monroe, Georgia and Walton County through the Members of the Boys & Girls Club.  I often portray the picture to the Members to understand that they will create communities that will be positive, and one where they all can benefit from.  I want them always to understand that it will begin right here, at their local Boys & Girls Club.  I also emphasized how important it is for them to stay involved and participate in the programs that are given here at the Boys & Girls Club, so that they can be equipped to work out the vision set forth for them.  One of the components of building their network and communities is investing in the future of the youth financially

Celebrating our Youth 

Walton County Boys & Girls Club celebrates its members and their accomplishments. This month the Club is Youth of the Month Makai Robinson.

Makai has been a member of the Club ever since he was 6 years old.

“He always wants to you to know that he is special, and he proves it by being one of the first to want to read aloud his books in the Learning Center, as well excelling in all of the physical activities held in the gym,” WCBGC Director, Lynn E. Hill, shared. “His smile is always captivating, and his manners always captures your attention.”

Being named Youth of the Month is a credit to the youth’s character and shown leadership abilities within the Club.

“My Walton Club helps me excel in my homework, especially when I don’t understand the material. Everyone here cares about my wellbeing and I have fun here,” Makai shared. 

For one volunteer Makai helped showcase you can make a difference in a child’s life.

“As a volunteer of the Club, I found myself nervous as to whether I could make a difference in their lives with the activities that I would engage the Members in.  Makai would confirm my success with them.  He would always come back to me and tell me what he thought of my activity that I shared with them,” Sherrie Blare shared. “Whenever we have art projects to do in the Art Room he not only cleans up his work afterwards, but he helps other members clean up and that is something rare and unique.  Makai is a very smart kid, with a great future ahead of him.”

Makai’s character sparks joy for Club staff and reminds them why they’re work matters every day he enters the Club. 

“There is a uniqueness about this young individual that I haven’t seen in a long time, as I have worked with youth at the Boys & Girls Club,” Hill shared. “I find him very encouraging and an inspiration to myself personally and our Club members.”

Club members were given the opportunity to prepare for the event by learning protocol and procedures for the event, as they are advised by mentors in the Passport to Manhood Programs, while other Club Members participated by creating colorful art designs on canvass frames.  These projects will be transported to the Belles & Bowties event, in which the paintings, portraits, and projects will be held in a silent auction and the proceeds with help to benefit the Club. 

“We want to co-ordinate with the Advisory Board, volunteers and staff, who work with these Members to give it their best creative thoughts to express art in such a way that the guests of the event will want to not only bid on their work, but come out to the Club and meet these future artists and graphic designers. Great Futures in the Arts can really start here, too,” Lynn E. Hill, WCBGC Director, shared. 

Club member Allen Giddens looks around at the art being created and shares, “It feels good to know that I can do something to help out my Club.  It really means a lot to me!”

“The most fulfilling piece for the setup for the Belles & Bowties Event is to see these Club members feel important about their work, boosting their self-esteem, and having a healthy sense of pride in what they do and how they feel about themselves and the ways that they can influence others in their community,” Hill shared. 

Sherrie Blare, a volunteer at WCBGC, is leading the artwork preparation and said “The kids seem to really enjoy this project, not only because it is fun to create a project in art, but they are really excited that someone is going to view their work and buy their work so that we could raise monies for their Club.”

“I never realized how enjoyable painting at this level could be.  It just goes to show you how the simple things in life, such as creative art design can relieve stress and take you away from the problems of the world,” she added. “It is so healthy for these kids to escape the hardships at home, school, or community, and be at this Club where their creativity can help them overcome growing pains.

WCBGC Step Team Shines


Volunteer Gives Back 

Twenty-five young girls of the Walton County Boys & Girls Club spend Friday’s in the Club practicing together as the Golden Steppers – a step team. Their ages range from 8 to 12-years-old and in the month of March they’ll have their first debut performances – one placing them at the University of Georgia. 


“When I first walked through the doors of the Club and met the step team, my heart immediately longed for the opportunity to work with these youth,” WCBGC Volunteer Taylor Butts, shared. 

Serving as their choreographer, Taylor has found a home in volunteering at the Club. 

“With so much energy and uniqueness, that I found here, I knew that this was the place for me to come and volunteer.  The director and staff were so welcoming that I felt a high sense of inclusion and they made me feel as if I belonged here to do good work for these youth,” she said.

Each Friday, the young girls begin by listening to Taylor share a positive lesson and begins each session and practice with a warm-up, stretch, and lecture on life lessons and she’s taking a page from the WCBGC way in what type of stories she finds to share. 

“The Director explained to me the three things that they accomplish in each member that attends the Club. That is for them to build good character, be healthy and become academically successful,” she said. “I come to the Club as a volunteer who believes in those same principles, and I am so happy to be a part of this success climb.”

For Club Director, Lynn E. Hill, Taylor has been such an asset to the Club.

“Taylor has been such a role model for our young girls and we’re so excited for their upcoming performances,” he said. “She shares an energy with these Club members that just displays a wonderful connection between the members and herself.”

The youth will perform March 16 at University of Georgia for a step show fundraiser, in which of the proceeds will return back to the Boys & Girls Club, here in Walton County. Their other performance in March will be a benefit program for drug awareness and crime prevention.

“I love to work with youth, especially in a place that is geared towards helping youth succeed,” Taylor shared. “Volunteering is truly fulfilling, especially when you can see the difference that you are making, while you are working.”

MMBGC Club Alumni: "This Club is Family to me"

Why Volunteering at her Club matters


For former Madison-Morgan County Boys & Girls Club member, Artelia B., coming back to volunteer at her local Club reminds her about the joys of being apart of the Boys & Girls Club movement. 

“I was a Club member for four years,” she shared. “This place taught me how to be a successful adult by helping hone in on my skills to showcase interests I could have in my future. I’ve excited to be a part of that teaching for the youth here today.”

If Artelia had to choose one word to describe the atmosphere of the Club she would choose “family.”

“When I was here as a Club member, my Club felt like my family and they helped me to surprise myself with the achievements I accomplished here,” she shared. “While I’m here volunteering, I’ll be focusing on helping Club members with their homework, confidence and assisting with our Smart Girls Program, which empowers our young girls within our Club.”

Tabitah Lowe, Madison-Morgan County Boys & Girls Club Program Director, said having Ms. Artelia back in the Club is a joyous sight to see.  

“When we have Club members here, we always share how you’re a Club member for life – and you are,” she shared. “We care about the whole child and their development into adulthood and how we may support them as an adult. She’s been giving important insights to our members during our Smart Girls Program that I know these young women will never forget. This is what our movement is about – creating the next generation of productive adults giving back!”

PNBGC Announces Youths of the Month for March

For Club members at Pete Nance Boys & Girls Club being named Youth of the Month is a high honor. Every month a youth is recognized for modeling their leadership abilities. 

For the month of March, PNBGC named Ja’Layla K. as Youth of the Month 

“Ja’Layla has grown into a leader within the Club by following Club rules and helping out despite being a Club member for only a short period of time,” Diedra Richbow, PNBGC Program Coordinator shared. “Our Youth of the Month is a Club-driven experience that fosters leadership within the Club and Ja’Layla is a shining example of what it takes to be a leader.”

PNBGC members read with a helping paw


Reading is a crucial part of childhood development and according to the National Education Association, reading doesn’t just impact verbal and written skills, but mathematics as well. 


With these statistics in mind, Pete Nance Boys & Girls Club members are currently engaged in a fun-filled program where children practice reading to their best fur friends. 

K-9 Angels is a reading program with Canine Assistants service dogs and volunteers geared to help Club members practice reading skills and become more confident in their ability to read.

“Our Club members really look forward to the dogs coming into our Club,” Diedra Richbow, PNBGC Program Coordinator shared. “Most of our youth seem to naturally love animals - especially dogs. Imagine the joy and excitement this gives to the members as they read to the dogs. They’re less focused on feeling uncomfortable reading in front of their peers and more engaged in reading their stories to their new-found fur friends.”

Club member, Kayden D., shares she loves reading books to her favorite dog Memphis.

“Memphis loves any book I read to him and it’s a lot of fun to reading to the dogs,” she shared. 

Richbow says that since the K-9 Angels program arrived to Pete Nance Boys & Girls Club, Club members have exceeded their growth in NWEA MAP reading. Currently, 80 percent of members participate in this program.

Volunteering to see ‘positive impacts’


Pete Nance Boys & Girls Club volunteer Carol Kuhn sees the Club as an asset to Greene County’s community its families – that’s why she’s committed to being in the youth’s lives at the Club. Whether its tutoring during Power Hour or listening to younger Club members share their dreams, Carol knows it’s important to be present. 

“There’s no better way to make a difference in a child’s life than personal interaction and genuine interest in them,” she shared. “I see PNBGC as a needed resource to help offer that interaction and support and that’s why I keep giving back here – I want to continue to see that positive impact in our youth.”

When asked about an impactful moment to choose from Kuhn said it’s every day moments that tug on her heart strings. 

“During a one-to-one tutoring session with a high school student, I was able to connect with her on something she was having a difficult time understanding,” she said. “We were able to get her caught up in that one session so when she returned to class the next day she was on the same page with her fellow classmates. Being able to help that Club member was such a privilege and joy.”

Volunteering at the Club, for Kuhn, helps offer moments like this to Club members every day and gives members and even larger support group of adults cheering them on. 

“This Club is building better futures and instilling character-building qualities into its youth,” she shared.

College is an important next step for many teens approaching their junior year of high school. For the Pete Nance Boys & Girls Club teens and tweens college preparation is a daily part of their conversation amongst peers and staff members, as a part of the Diplomas 2 Degrees program. During their winter break, youth of PNBGC visited Georgia College.


“Our teens were able to observe anactive campus atmosphere while learning about the requirements and responsibilities expected of first-year students,” Brad Parr, PNBGC Director shared. “They also received an extensive overview of tuition requirements, housing options, majors offered, meal plans, intramural sports and extracurricular activities available at Georgia College.”

For Club member Annie H. walking around Georgia College’s campus was exciting, as she imagined what being a college student would look like after graduation. 

“We got the opportunity to walk around campus, which was exciting because we got to see college students going to classes and hanging out around campus. The tour guide showed us the dorm rooms, apartments, classrooms, recreational center, library and The Max,” she shared. 

More importantly Annie noted that she enjoyed learning how you pick your classes and where you can receive tutoring. 

“It’s important to me to visit colleges, so I can have ideas about going to college and what college life is like,” she said. 

Other Club members enjoyed the in-depth look at the cost for college, which instilled the important of obtaining good grades in high school for potential scholarships opportunities.

“I loved touring the library and learning about class structures, as well as receiving credit for tutoring – it seems this school really cares about you succeeding,” Club member Adarius W shared. “I was also surprised to learn about the bus service on campus and loved the basketball gym.”

Ultimately, the goal for college visits are to help PNBGC teens and tweens, not only dream about their future, but discover ways to work toward their goals.

“We want our teens to succeed any everything they set their minds to and for some college can be truly a daunting new adventure,” Parr said. “Our program Diplomas 2 Degrees focuses on elevating the fear of college, while helping our teens file applications, practice interviewing and discuss where they may want to pursue a higher education past high school.”

WCBGC Volunteer Brings Art Talks to Club


Art is a daily expression used within Walton County Boys & Girls Club to help Club youth learn new skills, have creative outlets and find new passions. For Sherrie Lee Blare, a WCBGC volunteer, she’s seen first-hand how the Club’s enriching youths lives daily.

“I began volunteering at the Walton County Boys & Girls Club at the beginning of January this year. During this short amount of time, I have learned so much from the members,” she shared. “Volunteering at WCBGC has made such a positive impact on my life.  I truly enjoy having meaningful conversations with Club youth, learning more about them and building relationships with Club members.”

Blare personally loves working with creative arts and adult coloring. She finds them a therapeutic exercise for herself. And, “it appears it does the same for our young members,” she said. 

“One day I stopped in with some adult coloring books and colored pencils. Little did I know that coloring would stimulate so many conversations.  These young ladies had me laughing the entire time,” she shared. “We talked and shared our ideas and our feelings.  The best part was the next time I came in several Club members came to me and asked if they could color and talk more!”

Blare says she had been interested in giving back and it’s been so rewarding to be a volunteer at WCBGC. 

“It’s just so important to give you time and attention to our youth,” she said. “Every interaction and conversation are an opportunity for character building.  Through volunteering at the B&G Club of Walton, you are opening doors for them that lead to their future success story.”
