The Boys and Girls Club of America (BGCA) is well-known for providing life enhancing opportunities for children and adolescents who may not have otherwise had access to such life developing resources. After more than a century since its formation, BGCA continues to hold to its infamous mission statement and core beliefs. The mission of the club strives “to enable all young people, especially those who need us most to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible.” 

BGCA also holds firmly to the club’s founding four core beliefs. The first to provide a safe and secure environment for members to learn and grow. The second, encouraging and maintaining relationships with caring and professional adults. The third, to provide life-enriching programs as well as character development opportunities. The final core belief and perhaps the most promising, is the creation of hope and opportunity.

Who are the Committee Heads?






Teja Kommera


About Me:  I've always wanted to be the committee head for Boys and Girls Club because I want to help kids succeed. Being a mentor to kids helps not only the child but also helps develop you as an individual and can give you another perspective. I love working out and listening to The Weeknd.

I want to be a HOPE Committee Head because it will give me the chance to take initiative in a club I am an avid participant in; I love to volunteer and would like to help give the same opportunity to my fellow peers.
