To our Boys & Girls Clubs of MetroWest Members, Families, Staff, and Supporters:
The Boys and Girls Clubs of MetroWest is deeply saddened by the recent events in the news. The social injustice, systemic racism and structural violence we are witnessing across our country cannot be tolerated. As an organization our first responsibility is to support our Club members, our Club families, and our Club staff, many whom are people of color, as they process these accumulated horrific events that are impossible to ignore. We stand in solidarity with all those impacted and firmly believe that Black Lives Matter.
Our priority is to provide a supportive and safe place for our Club community members as they process the cumulative effect of social injustice plaguing our country. Acts of violence and racism are repugnant and in all ways contrary to our Boys & Girls Club core values and beliefs. Out team will expand our efforts to work in collaboration with our communities to create a safe environment for our youth. Our mission is to “enhance the development of children and to prepare young adults to be responsible and productive members of the community.” We vow to work to remove barriers that impact our Club members’ ability to reach their full potential.
President & CEO
