2020 Leadership

Some of America’s most effective leaders across sectors and industries.

Leading the Way Forward

Guiding a national organization that supports more than 4,700 Boys & Girls Clubs across the country and on U.S. military installations worldwide during a global pandemic is no small task. Fortunately, some of America’s most effective leaders across sectors and industries, many of whom were Club kids in their youth, serve as national Governors and Trustees. Their dedication, guidance and support helped ensure Clubs had the capacity to rise to the significant challenges that communities faced in 2020. Throughout the year, our Board of Governors were directly responsible for $4.7 million raised toward our mission, and the engagement and personal contributions of BGCA Trustees resulted in $4.2 million, breaking giving records.

Larry and Colette Young

Leader Spotlight: Larry & Colette Young

In 2020, Larry and Colette Young were presented with the Herbert Hoover Humanitarian Award, the highest honor BGCA bestows on volunteers for their extensive and dedicated service to youth. Larry, the former CEO and president of Dr Pepper Snapple Group and a Club member in his youth, serves on BGCA’s Board of Governors, and Colette, president of ExecuMate, serves as a BGCA Trustee for the Southwest region. Together, they’ve helped launch BGCA’s Alumni & Friends Association, facilitate community partnerships with local Clubs throughout the Southwest and ardently support Southwest Youth of the Year. They are outspoken champions of BGCA, even publishing an article in 2020 encouraging neighbors and community members to invest in the mission-driven work that means so much to them.
