These youth enhance an image of strong community through their dedication to the service and community projects they take part in.Rain or shine ages 11-18 show up at the Boys & Girls Club of Alpena and have one purpose in mindů volunteer. They put their heart and soul into the projects and services they are a part of. Some of the projects that the youth are dedicated to are inter-generational projects, a wildlife exploration activity called River Rats, food packing projects and so much more.The core values that these teens are instilled with during this program goes beyond selfless. They have come to know volunteering as a part of their life, culture and what it means to be a true citizen of a community.It helps more youth become more in tune with the unmet community needs.These funds open the door for more youth to participate in the program.
