Professionals Advancing Local Success (PALS)
Our PALs group with our Youth of the Year Candidates from the Clubs. The PALS group mentors the youth candidates throughout the judging process.
PALS is a group of young professionals who engage in local leadership opportunities, while becoming the next generation of community philanthropists. PALS works in partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Northwest Indiana to find and become involved with leadership, mentoring, and networking opportunities.
PALS is responsible for raising their own funds to use throughout the year. The group may host fundraising events such as comedy nights, trivia nights or other smaller events to help fund their initiatives.
PALS plays a large part in preparing our youth for Youth of the Year, a national BGCA program. PALS helps the members with speech writing, public speaking and interviewing techniques.
Every member will be responsible for an annual dues amount of $75.
