Kim Swintosky, senior attorney at Smith Anderson, joins Smith Anderson partners, Marks Arnold and Sammy Thompson on the Board of Directors of the Wake County Boys & Girls Club.
The mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs is to enable all young people, especially those who need help most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. The organization provides a safe place to learn and grow; ongoing relationships with caring, adult professionals; life-enhancing programs and character development experiences that give youth hope and opportunity. The Club’s core programs focus on character and leadership development; education and career development; health and life skills; the arts; and sports, fitness and recreation.
The Wake County Boys & Girls Club operates seven clubs and a summer day camp. Each club is located in an actual neighborhood-based building that is open daily after school and on Saturday – and during the summer – when youth have free time and need positive and productive outlets. Each club is staffed by a trained youth development professional and part-time staff and volunteers offering role models and mentors to the young people. Cost is never a barrier to participation. Membership fees for the youngsters are only $7.50 a year.
