Youth voice and choice are an important part of all of our Clubs!

Albany eighth-grader selected as Girls Empowering Movement leader

The month of March kicks off National #WomenMonth! This celebration is all about shining the light on all the great women that make our Clubs, Communities, and World a place where young girls can dream to become anything possible. To kick things off, we want to spotlight Timmea Jordan, a dedicated member of our Jane Willson Unit.
Timmea, an 8th-grade student at Robert A. Cross Middle Magnet, credits her hard work and exposure to teen service and leadership programs, like Keystone for cultivating her love for working with the club members and building her confidence to be a leader. Timmea has been selected by HealthMPowers and Boys and Girls Clubs of Georgia as a student leader for the new Girls Empowering Movement Program. Sponsored by The Atlanta Falcons Youth Foundation, GEM is a five-year statewide initiative to improve middle school girls’ physical activity. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Albany Family is proud of the work of this young individual who is becoming a great young leader in our club and community.
