According to a press release sent to Townsquare Media, with funding help from the Tuscaloosa County Democratic Party, the Boys and Girls Club of West Alabama will offer a summer scholarship to 12 members in 2023.

According to the release, Judy Taylor and the Tuscaloosa County Democratic Party recognize the impact summer programming can have on local students and secured scholarship funding to make it possible for more youth in the West Alabama community to benefit from membership at Boys & Girls Clubs.

The organization was the beneficiary of a community-wide Egg Hunt fundraiser held at Jaycee Park earlier this month.

Kim Turner, President and CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of West Alabama, expressed her gratitude for the support, stating that the organization believes that every child should have access to programs that increase opportunity and provide the best chance for lifelong success.

Registration for the Boys & Girls Clubs of West Alabama's summer program is currently open for their sites in Tuscaloosa and Hale counties. Members will benefit from fun activities and a curriculum designed to prevent summer learning loss and prepare members for academic success in the fall.

If you are a resident of Tuscaloosa or Hale County and are interested in registering for the Boys & Girls Clubs of West Alabama's summer program or applying for the summer scholarship opportunity, please visit their website for more information.

The program is an excellent opportunity for young people to engage in academic and social activities while having fun in a safe and inclusive environment.

You can learn more about these scholarships and membership with the West Alabama Boys And Girls Club on their site or by calling (205) 553-3838.
