On Thursday, Sept. 22nd the Boys & Girls Clubs of Dundee Township received a “Friend of the Family” Award from the Family Services of Greater Elgin. The award was presented to BGCDT CEO, Curt McReynolds, during the 85th Anniversary Gala at Elgin Country Club.
It’s no secret that the real magic of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Dundee Township is the staff that occupy our Clubs, working tirelessly with our at-risk youth on a daily basis. We are fortunate to announce that twenty (20) part-time employees celebrated an anniversary with our organization over the months of August & September.
Ten (10) of our part-time staff celebrated 3 years or more and three (3) staff members celebrated anniversaries of over 8 years with the organization, which is tremendous and a true testament to the character of our collective staff.
Thank you to our partners at Comcast for inviting Curt McReynolds, Boys & Girls Clubs of Dundee Township President & CEO, on the set of Comcast Newsmakers to highlight the work and mission of BGCDT.
McReynolds was interviewed by award-winning television host and analyst, Paul Lisnek. The interview was conducted at the Rockford Comcast studio and will air on Comcast Channel 100 throughout the Region in the month of October.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Dundee Township recently hosted both the 1st & 2nd place teams (First STEP & MALEBOX) from the Dundee Crown High School INCubator Program. The INCubator Program is a business course offered at Dundee Crown High School that allows students to develop a new business concept, led by a local community business leader, in an effort to earn actual start-up revenue from local investors.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Dundee Township kicked off a brand new school year on Tuesday, August 16th. Club members greeted our staff, across eight (8) Club locations with smiles, excitement, hope and anticipation for an exciting school year. Many of our Club members, however, come to us armed with little supplies for the new school year, often missing the most basic of essential school supplies.
