The AAOE Annual Conference Council has chosen Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago as our charity for the 2024 Annual Conference. Our goal is to reach $10,000 in charity donations for this organization.
When you donate $25 you have the option to receive a Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago t-shirt.
Let’s have some fun while we work to achieve our goal! AAOE is hosting a donation competition between conference attendees and conference vendors to see who will raise the most for Boys & Girls Clubs of South Chicago. All t-shirt purchases count as donations to both the competition and our overall goal. If you would like to donate now or learn more about the competition, please use the donate links below.
What is Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago?
Founded in 1902, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago’s mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. Serving nearly 20,000 youth ages 5 to 18, Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago works to provide members with the emotional, educational, physical, and cultural resources that allow them to enjoy their childhood and thrive in adulthood. At our Clubs, they find caring mentors, avenues of opportunity and the tools they need to prepare for great futures.
Our Clubs strive to reach our three key priority outcomes:
Our programs help our members make academic strides and graduate from high school with a plan for the future.
Good Character and Citizenship
Club members are taught to be engaged citizens involved in the community and to model strong character.
From building self-esteem and confidence to providing healthy meals and activities, our Clubs help kids develop healthy habits that last a lifetime.
