Director Q & A

Q & A with the Executive Director – Terry Walker-Moore

Why Boys & Girls Club

I love working with kids and teens and helping them become great leaders.

Who Influenced Me

My mother was the person who influenced my life as a kid. She was a single mother who wore many hats. She impacted many lives throughout our community volunteering for our church, school, and civic organizations.

Advice for our Youth

Without faith, it is impossible.

Our Impact in the Community

The Club is making a positive impact in our community because of the relationships we build here. It start with “US”. Unity of the people will change lives.

What Makes Our Club Special

This is the only Club within Rockdale County and it’s a place that is vital to the community.
