About Great Futures Society

Our Clubs offer daily after-school and full-day summer youth development programs focused on providing kids and teens in our community with an outcome-driven, world-class Club Experience, assuring success is within their reach.


Great Futures Society is a young professionals committee that extends their time, talent and resources to support the mission of BGCCI – ultimately making a difference in the lives of youth in our community. Great Futures Society focuses on four objectives:

  • Create a welcoming philanthropic environment where young professionals can meet, gain exposure, share ideas and experiences.

  • Support BGCCI through personal financial investment, fundraising, & volunteerism

  • Serve as ambassadors – introducing the mission of BGCCI to internal networks through word of mouth, social media and/or personal introductions, to help increase awareness.

  • Own BGCCI’s Youth of the Year program and event, including the recruitment of candidates, preparation and mentorship of candidates, event fundraising and event preparation.

    • Youth of the Year is Boys & Girls Clubs’ premier recognition program, celebrating the extraordinary achievements of Club members. Each year, high school aged Club members in Central Iowa, and in Clubs across the country, compete in a robust competition to hone their leadership skills, make valuable connections, and win scholarship awards.


The Great Futures Society will be most active in September-March, with monthly meetings and additional time spent mentoring youth and preparing for the March Youth of the Year event.

Through the Great Futures Society you will:

  • Connect, socialize, volunteer and network with like-minded peers

  • Receive invitations to BGCCI events and discounted Talent Show tickets

  • Gain leadership development opportunities, including access to board liaisons
