Boys & Girls Clubs of America had its beginnings in 1860 with three women in Hartford, Connecticut who believed that boys needed a positive alternative to roaming the streets. Since then the organization has expanded, with clubs across the country providing a safe place for kids to learn, grow, and reach their full potential. Here to talk about the mission and some of the programs offered locally are Michelle Seither, Operations director for the Boys & Girls Clubs of West Chester/Liberty, and Boys and Girls Club of Greater Cincinnati Director of Operations Bill Bresser.
