Davenport Teen Center opening
On August 24th, BGCMV opened a new space just for Davenport teens in the JB Young Opportunity Center. We are grateful for this opportunity to expand our services to more teens, and to provide them with a safe, fun, and educational place to be after school and during the summer.
Maggie Pappas is the Davenport Teen Center Director, and she is working with Club members to order furniture and decorations to make the space their own. We are accepting applications for more teens-please click here for an application, or call 309-757-5777 for more information.
Some summer highlights for Moline Club members are attending a River Bandits game and meeting Rascal, spending time at the John Deere Classic, and participating in the Get Hooked Fishing Derby. They are excited for this upcoming school year, when they will partner with the Putnam Museum, Boy Scouts, and the Quad City Symphony Orchestra. Junior members will also participate in Chess Club!

In August, our Teens wrapped up their First Tee, Hy-Vee cooking, and U of I cooking programs. They have soccer and basketball teams planned for fall, as well as a STEM program, cooking, and Youth for Unity.
In October, they will be raking leaves around the neighborhood, starting Passport to Manhood and Smart Girls, Planet Fitness, and the IHMVCU Money Matters program. They will also go to a Haunted House, paint pumpkins as part of a Hy-Vee fundraiser, and start Day of the Dead prep!
On August 10th, 104 Club members and staff spent the day at Adventureland! Thanks to a generous donation from Group O, our members enjoyed fun bus rides, great food, and time at both Adventureland Park and the waterpark, Adventureland Bay! Members had a wonderful time, and this was a great way to close out the summer celebrating with their Club friends. Thank you, Group O!
