To connect young professionals with the desire to make a difference in a child's life through leadership, volunteerism and advocacy.
Club Blue consists of young professionals in Northeast Florida who want to make a difference in their community. Established in 2011, our goal is to support the mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Florida by extending our time, talent and resources to the organization, ultimately making a difference in the lives of the youth that BGCNF serves.
What is the purpose of Club Blue?
- Facilitate an environment for young professionals to meet, network, and share ideas and experiences to assist with personal and professional development, while helping to change the lives of others.
- To form strong partnerships to support Club Blue's efforts to raise funds, advocate and volunteer for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Florida.
- Provide an opportunity to those who wish to dedicate their time, talent and/or resources to support the mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Florida.
