One of the most rewarding, and educating, aspects of working for the Salvation Army is that I get to be surrounded by people who truly want to make Tulsa better.  These are people who want to have a say in what happens to the future of our city and the people living in it.  It makes me want to do more for our community.
  
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Tulsa is looking for eager, innovative and committed people to join its Advisory Council.  The Council meets once a month, usually on a Thursday during lunchtime, to discuss what is happening in our six Boys & Girls Clubs in the Tulsa area and provide leadership to move the Clubs forward.
   
Right now, about a dozen people make up the Council, all coming from different backgrounds and working in various industries across Tulsa.  

Aaron Massey, who works for JP Morgan Chase, is the Advisory Council President. “I joined the Boys & Girls Clubs for the opportunity to immediately impact the lives of kids in our community,” says Massey.  “There is no better way to ensure the future of our kids and our communities then to help lead our young people to become productive, caring, and responsible citizens.”

Administrators are looking for those who are willing to educate the public about activities, success stories and needs in our Clubs.  A Council member is also someone who is willing to help with fundraising efforts.
   
“The Boys & Girls Club Council is fun environment to help change the lives of those in our community,” says Massey.  “We’re a fun council where we constantly are focused on improving our youth to become productive, caring, and responsible citizens. Please join today so you can have an immediate impact on the future of our community and the lives of our kids.”

Those interested in joining the Boys & Girls Advisory Council can call the Administrative office at 918-835-6902.
