Chuck Kime, Foundation for Youth executive director, is attending the Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s fourth annual National Day of Advocacy in Washington, D.C.

Kime will participate in a group session at The White House during the event, which continues through Wednesday, and includes Boys & Girls Club representatives meeting independently with members of Congress to champion the needs of local youth.

“This is a rare opportunity to demonstrate the life-changing impact of federal funding that we’re able to witness on a daily basis,” Kime said.

Among programs being discussed are workforce development and education, youth mentoring, meal reimbursement and 21st Century Community Learning Centers.
