Over the past year, Boys & Girls Clubs of Larimer County, Loveland Unit Keystone Club has been fundraising for their National Conference. Keystone is a national program that fosters a sense of civic duty in Club members age 14-18. Focused on leadership and service to Club and community, members at the Loveland Unit participate in Club clean-ups, visit a local Alzheimer facility monthly, and have highway clean ups. Members also participate in career exploration and academic success projects.
Held in Dallas, TX this year, the Keystone National Conference will be celebrating the Year of the Teen, a national initiative to encourage teens to attend their local BGCs. The conference offers members a chance to connect with Keystoners from around the world. Members go on career exploration and college tours, participate in team building and learn how to better impact their community. In order to attend this year's conference, our Keystone members have held movie nights and dances for Club members, raising over $3,000. By sacrificing many Friday nights, these hard working teens have earned enough to attend this year's conference. One such event was our annual Valentine's Day Dance!
