Club Happenings

Skip Robinson

The Club proudly welcomes Skip Robinson as Chief Operating Officer. Skip joins us from Milwaukee where he served as VP of community relations and player development for the NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks for 15 years.

Skip brings to the Club a long and personal history of helping at-risk youth. He worked in administrative roles at various Boys & Girls Clubs throughout the United States before landing in Milwaukee where he founded the Milwaukee’s Midnight Basketball League. The league combined his two loves – basketball and helping kids by providing them with an alternative to the streets and develop a love for the game.

Having overcome great adversity while growing up, Skip developed his passion for helping at-risk youth where he draws upon his own personal experiences to relate to and make a difference in their lives. Skip believes that every child needs a safe place to call home and makes it his mission to provide them with that stability and support.

The Club is honored to have Skip and looks forward to his service in carrying out our    vision of providing a world-class Club experience that ensures success is within reach of every young person.


Congratulations Adolphe Francois and Laurisha Devalgras who were selected as National winners in BGCA’s 2015 National Fine Arts Exhibit Contest! Adolphe and Laurisha  are among 37 finalists chosen out of 1,500 applicants  to represent BGCA as national winners. Adolphe’s Tree of Life Collage and Laurisha’s Crazy Coil Pot Sculpture will be reproduced and sent to Regional and National conferences around the country. We are so proud of the both of you!


More than 100 members are attending a four day water safety camp put on by the ZAC Foundation at the Club.  We are among 20 clubs in the nation that have been chosen as part of a partnership between the ZAC Foundation and BGCA to expand water safety programming. There are swimming pool lessons  and safety classes with first responders ensuring that our youth can remain safe while enjoying the water.


School is out and summer is here with the summer enrichment program! We look forward to helping our youth continue to develop with fun and educational activities such as reading, mentoring, dance and music, swimming, arts and crafts, organized sports and field trips.


Congratulations to our Club members who will be graduating high school this year. Thank you for being such great ambassador's of the Club. We are so proud of you and know that you will go on to achieve Great Futures!


 In celebration of National Painting Week, 25 Sherwin-Williams employees volunteered their time to help freshen up outside parts of the Club. They painted everything from fire hydrants, to poles, hand rails, parking signs and so much more. Thank you Sherwin Williams for helping to make our Club look amazing.


As part of National Volunteer Month and Comcast Cares Day, Comcast volunteers visited the Club and packaged more than 900 meals that will be distributed to members to bring home. All food items were donated by Comcast.


We are excited to announce that we recently broke ground on the new Michael G. DeGroote and Gillian Campbell Youth Development Center in Immokalee. More than 100 people attended the groundbreaking ceremony, which included community leaders, donors and supporters.

The building is expected to be complete by January 2017 and will serve the unmet, out-of-school time needs of  Immokalee youth. The 24,512-square-foot facility will house a full service cafeteria, kitchen, classrooms, computer labs, dance and music studio, arts academy, teen center and more.


The Great Futures Start Here Campaign is in full swing! We invite you to join others throughout the community and become a member of the Great Futures Club. All proceeds raised go directly to provide scholarships for local youth to attend the Boys & Girls Club's after school and summer programs.
