Warren/Holyfield Boys & Girls Club
Johnnetta “Netta” Hearb has been a member of the Warren/Holyfield Club since the age of 9. Her grandmother thought it would be a good idea to enroll her in BGCMA because Johnnetta was very shy and reserved. Over the years, Johnnetta has become more outgoing and sociable. Since joining the Club she has been an active member in programs such as: the Torch Club, Money Matters, SMART Girls, Keystone, and College Bound along with various community service projects. Johnnetta recently graduated from Maynard Jackson High School and earned over $12,000 in scholarships through BGCMA. She will be attending Savannah State University in the fall and we wish her the best!

Commodore Virgil P. Warren was elected president of the board for the first Atlanta Boys Club in February 1939. Commodore and Mrs. Warren had a strong interest and commitment to continue to foster activities and programs that furthered development of the Atlanta Boys Club. In 1941, the club was named in honor of Commodore Warren as the Warren Boys Club. By the mid 1980s, it was estimated that 50-75 percent of all Boys Clubs across the country were serving girls. In 1991, after the merger between Boys Club and the Girls Club, we became the Warren Boys & Girls Club of Metro Atlanta.
Funding for the Academic Success program provided in part by the Fulton County Board of Commissioners under the guidance of the Housing and Human Services Department Grant Programs.
