This Year's Running of the Ducks 2017

Get Ready April 5, 2017

Our “Club of the Month” is The Abbeville Club!

Club Director: Whitney Chevalier

Where is your club located?

301 A.A. Comeaux Memorial Dirve in Abbeville

How long have you worked for The Boys & Girls Clubs?
I have been a part of the Boys & Girls Clubs movement for 10 years.

What do you hope to accomplish in your club this year? 

I hope to build lasting relationships with the youth that we serve and be a positive male figure.  I want my main focus to be touching the lives of these kids in a positive way.

What do you think makes your Club successful?

Great Staff. Deserving Kids. And a wonderful community!

What is your favorite thing about your club?

Passport to Manhood has always been my favorite program.  Seeing a kid realize that he just tied a tie for the first time in his life is great! And also, any sports programs because it gives kids with different backgrounds who normally wouldn’t hang out with each other a chance to come together.

Countdown Till Running of the Ducks 2017








Character| Leadership
Helping youth become responsible, caring citizens and acquire skills for participating in the democratic process is the main thrust of these programs. They also develop leadership skills and provide opportunities for planning, decision-making, contributing to Club and community and celebrating our national heritage.
Education | Career
BGCA has implemented the programmatic strategy Every Member, Every Year, designed so that all Clubs, no matter their size or resources, can partner with youth, parents, schools and other community stakeholders to implement at least one of three approaches: academic enrichment and school engagement; targeted dropout prevention; and intensive intervention and case management. Our aim is to ensure that all Club members graduate from high school on time, ready for a post-secondary education and a 21st-century career.
Health | Life Skills
We help develop a youth’s capacity to engage in positive behaviors that nurture their own well-being, set personal goals and live successfully as self-sufficient adults.
The Arts
From COX Technology Centers to specialized programs like Tap Dancing The Boys & Girls Clubs of Acadiana is on the right track to a more artistic & creative learning process for the future.
Sports | Fitness | Recreation
Many Club programs help develop fitness, a positive use of leisure time, reduction of stress, appreciation for the environment and social and interpersonal skills.
Specialized Programs
Many club initiatives focus on meeting the significant and specific needs identified within Boys & Girls Clubs. Their broad scope complements several or all of our core program areas.
