Tree of Hope for Albany Youth

Posted on

Boys & Girls Clubs of Albany is more than just a youth development organization. It is a place where youth are given hope for a bright future and opportunities to realize their dreams. As the Holiday season continues, we are focused on providing our members with hope and opportunity for their present and future lives via our Tree of Hope end-of-year campaign.

The Tree of Hope is an actual tree that holds the hopes and dreams of our members. The Tree of Hope is located in the lobby of our Thornton Park Club, and if you look closely at the tree you will see ornaments that have been created by our members that hold their hopes and dreams for the future. Why Tree of Hope? Think back for a moment to your own childhood. What did you dream about and hope for? Becoming a doctor or maybe owning your own business? Perhaps you dreamed of traveling around the world to visit uncharted lands or to discover the cure for a terminal illness.

The youth of today are no different from us. Many of them hope for an opportunity to go to college or becoming the next Bill Gates. Many aspire to become entrepreneurs or make a difference in their community. Desmond Tutu said, “Hope is being able to see that there is a light despite all of the darkness.”

Boys & Girls Clubs of Albany is the light that is shining in the dark places that try to destroy the hopes and opportunity for the youth of Albany. We believe that every child deserves to have their hopes and dreams fulfilled and that is why we exist. Won’t you join us today to help make the hopes and dreams of the youth of Albany a reality?
