Meet Claritza Fierro, Sunny Hill Site Director at BGCDT.

"Joining the Boys & Girls Clubs of Dundee Township felt like serendipity β€”starting as a simple act of translating for a parent and blossoming into a fulfilling 11-year journey. It's the heartwarming evolution of witnessing alumni whom I once mentored returning as colleagues, dedicated to making a difference just as we did for them, that stands as my proudest moment. Working here has not only allowed me to discover my passion for supporting families but has also pushed me to grow beyond my expectations as a leader, providing a safe, nurturing space for our members and their families."

Meet Diana Colin, Area Director at BGCDT.

"Joining the Boys & Girls Clubs of Dundee Township was inspired by my own positive experiences as a child at the Club, where I found a safe space and opportunities that shaped me. With over 9.5 years at BGCDT, the most fulfilling aspect of my role as Area Director is providing a safe, nurturing environment for our members to grow into leaders, mirroring the impact the Club had on me. Our commitment to evolving and offering more to our community sets us apart, making it rewarding to see the transformation in our youth.

It's a privilege to contribute to their journey, and moments when former members return to express their gratitude are a powerful testament to our impact. Outside of work, my interests include reading and enjoying various forms of entertainment, reflecting my personal connection to the mission and the joy of making a difference."
