B.O.L.D. (Boys Organized for Leadership & Dignity) & G.L.O.W. (Girls Leading Our World) is designed to empower our youth to live up to their full potential while overcoming any obstacles that may arise.  

OUR VISION: We believe that we can create a movement of youth leaders who know and believe in their worth. 

OUR VALUES: Men and Women of Character, Org. created B.O.L.D. (Boys Organized for Leadership & Dignity) & G.L.O.W. (Girls Leading Our World) to empower youth through our programs, workshops, and other services.

MEETINGS: Our monthly meetings provide a solid foundation to create strong independent young men and women while building brotherhood and sisterhood.  Our goal is to assist each group with bonding with and mentoring the age group below theirs.  This would create great unity among all members.

MEMBERSHIP:  Open to youth ages 8 through 18 years of age who are currently in school or homeschooled.  There is an annual registration fee of $20 and monthly dues are $5.00.  All fees go towards programs, services, snacks, and materials.

·         Group 1: Ages 8 - 10

·         Group 2: Ages 11 - 14

·         Group 3: Ages 15 - 18

Our goal is to have college students volunteer to mentor our high school students who will volunteer our middle school students who will mentor our elementary school students. 

Each age group will also have ambassadors who will be charged with assisting with membership, and programming & act as liaisons between members and advisors. 

Our monthly meetings provide a solid foundation to create strong independent young men and women while building lifelong friendships. Our goal is to assist each group with bonding with and mentoring the group below theirs. This would create great unity amongst members.
