Reimagining the Future – For the Kids!
April 26, 2024 at The Depot Minneapolis
For the Kids! provides an opportunity for us to come together to celebrate Club youth while raising funds that support Club members in achieving our North Star Goal: all members on track for a successful future beyond high school graduation.
This year’s For the Kids! will highlight BGCTC’s NEW Changemaker Challenge, encouraging Club teens to develop innovative solutions or ideas that address specific social, environmental, or community issues that aim to create positive change. Within the framework of TLC (Think, Learn, Create), participants are asked to propose and develop an advocacy project that has a meaningful impact on the social issue they have identified. The goal is to inspire and support those who aim to make a difference in their communities.
BGCTC’s Club programming strives to break down racial and ethnic disparities by helping young people succeed in school, develop leadership skills, make healthy choices, and build career aspirations. We provide Club members with a safe, supportive space as they explore their own identities and develop as individuals. We recognize the importance of highlighting the voices of our young people as they go through experiences that empower them to become positive changemakers within their communities. BGCTC is constantly striving to inspire all youth to think big and reimagine what the future looks like through their own lens. REIMAGINING THE FUTURE – FOR THE KIDS! is a chance for our youth to share their stories, ideas, and dreams with supporters from all around the community.
