Welcome to our Alumni & Friends Page!

We all have moments that shape us.  Parts of our lives that make us who we are.  For some, that was their time at the Boys & Girls Clubs.

That’s why we are launching an Alumni & Friends Club.  Maybe you attended the Club and your Club experience helped define who you are or maybe you know how critical it is to support today’s youth.  Either way, you can make a difference through Alumni & Friends.

We Have Awesome Alumni!

In celebration of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Yellowstone County’s through the years we are highlighted some of our amazing alumni.  Our goal is to highlight Alumni and their accomplishments monthly.

If you are a Club Alum,  know of one we should feature or would like to enroll in our Alumni & Friends Club  let us know.    It’s simple, email kowen@bgcyellowstone.org
