Staff Highlight- May 2021

Lauren Bland - Youth Development Specialist 


            I started working at the club in August of 2020. I have always enjoyed working with children, so I figured this job was perfect for me. Ever since that first day of work, the Boys and Girls Club has been a place where you can be yourself and enjoy time with the students. When I first started, I was placed in the Power Hour room (a room where youth are able to receive homework help). I thoroughly enjoyed being in that room and being able to supply help for struggling students. The staff and students are an absolute joy to be around, and I am so thankful for the opportunities of growth and knowledge that have been given to me for the past year.

            Outside of work, I serve in the nursery at my church and help out in the second grade Sunday school class whenever I get the chance. I have also been volunteering at PAWS Animal Shelter for the past four years. Reading and writing are my main hobbies whenever I have some free time, but I also enjoy taking long drives and watching movies. I will be starting my senior year in the fall and hope to go on to college at the University of Alabama to pursue a degree in education and history.
