Three Smith Anderson Lawyers are on the Boys & Girls Club Board of Directors
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.
