Boys and Girls Club

Each month, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bandera County select a Member of the Month for each of our sites. At our elementary sites, we collaborate with the Bandera County Kiwanis Club for this award to be titled, "Kiwanis TERRIFIC Kid!" At our Teen Center, we will hold a Youth of the Year ceremony in January in their honor. All youth are recognized at their sites and in their community. We are excited to announce the members that are awarded this month at all locations!
