Today, Dr. Bizzell received the National Service to Youth Award for over 5 years of devoted service and commitment to our communities, specifically to the BGCGW–Prince George’s County Region.
The mission of BGCGW is to help boys and girls of all backgrounds, especially those who need us most, build confidence, develop character, and acquire the skills needed to become productive, civic-minded, responsible adults.
The BGCGW serves kids and teens through an adopted strategy created by their National Headquarters to ensure academic success, good character and citizenship, and healthy lifestyles. Their 16 sites, covering 75 miles from Manassas to Germantown, serve as safe havens for their members. Open when schools are not, their clubs provide a safe and fun alternative to being home alone or on the street. Over 1,500 youth attend the Clubs for activities, to see their friends, and to spend time with positive and encouraging adults. They welcome every child for a nominal annual membership fee but will not turn any child away for inability to pay.
