Director Q & A

Q & A with the Executive Director – N’keschia Brundidge-Clark

Why Boys & Girls Club

I wanted to be a part of an organization that drives positive change in the lives of kids. Boys & Girls Club really stands by putting kids first.

Who Influenced Me

When I was a kid, my mother and grandmother were huge influences on me. They were the first to teach me the importance of good character.  I was also influenced by their dedication, work ethic, and drive. My 12th grade history teacher also played a major influence. She was a very strict teacher, but she challenged me and wouldn’t accept excuses.

Advice for our Youth

I would tell them to take advantage of every opportunity.  The world has more to offer than what you see around you. Don’t let fear deter you from the unknown. The opportunities you are given may lead you to a whole new path.

Our Impact in the Community

The Anderson Club is making a positive impact by giving kids a place to go that is safe and welcoming. Our Club provides these kids with opportunities to find and express their talents that they might not get in school.

What Makes Our Club Special

The Anderson Club is truly unique. It is a hidden gem in the middle of a busy community. Our Club offers a place where members can bond with staff and make lasting friendships. They can challenge themselves and share their love and appreciation of art, sports, education, and leadership.
