Join us in congratulating, Precious Blalock.

Born to a teenage mother who often didn’t have a stable place to call home, Precious knew challenges early on, but her name set the tone for her future. Thanks to her perseverance, faith and her Club, Precious has touched many lives already, plans to shape even more, and has already lived up to her name.

Those who know Precious describe her as honest, responsible and compassionate. She is a role model at her Club, leads the Youth Advisory Council, and is a leader within the Keystone leadership program. Outside of her Club, she regularly volunteers at her church and is a top student in her high school class.

Precious has had many meaningful experiences at her Club…experiences that have helped shaped who she is today.  In fact, Precious joined Women’s Giving Circle for our annual Kickoff event in 2014 with Susan Nethero and shared her story and goals for the future. We are proud to congratulate precious on this mission accomplished and proudly prepare her for her next mission – College!

Precious is attending the prestigious Georgetown University this fall on a full scholarship from the Gates Millennium Scholars Program.

Congratulations, Precious.

How Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta Is Impacting Young Girls

BGCMA reaches an average of 1,380 girls ages 6-18 every day in 28 Clubs across the region, many of whom come from single-parent, economically disadvantaged homes. The Women's Giving Circle has been created to help fund programs designed specifically for these girls.  The programs focus on academics, self-confidence, leadership skills, and healthy lifestyles - things these young women need to be successful in life.

Donations from Women's Giving Circle members will be used to support existing programs like SMART Girls, Girl Power Summit and Youth of the Year, as well as to develop new programs that address the evolving needs of young women in our community.
