Director Q & A
Q & A with the Executive Director – Terry Mitchell
As an alumnus of the club, I know through personal experience the impact and difference the club can make in the life of a youth. When I make the statement, “the club is a place where lives are saved and transformed,” it comes from a tangible experience and impact. I’m honored to have the opportunity to give back to a movement that has given me so many wonderful experiences.
The one individual who influenced me the most has to be my father. Daily watching him demonstrate what he was taught is inspiring. To watch this awesome individual demonstrate love on a daily and consistent basis is comforting and empowering.
That you were created with a great purpose. Allow what you’re most passionate about to decide and guide your life’s journey.
The club is that special place where we bridge the gap between school and home. This allows clubs to partner with schools, community partners and parents to create an experience for our youth that impacts the community that they live in.
The club is a special place because our youth are loved, encouraged and inspired to accomplish great things on a daily basis. It’s that special place where they are not judged, circumstances and past failures do not define who they are and what they can become.
