Our mission is "To inspire and enable all young people, especially those that need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens."
Learn how you can get involved.
First, we would like to thank our many supporters for standing by the Boys and Girls Club during this difficult time. As a Board we assure you that we will continue to learn from this experience and that we have enacted internal controls to ensure that the past problems of the Boys and Girls Club of the Grand Strand will never be repeated.
The past 17 months have been an experience that no organization should ever have to endure. As is the case with most Boards, we depended upon staff to manage the day-to-day operations of the Club, and it appears as though we relied upon an individual who used the resources of the Boys and Girls Club for her personal expenses, gains, and pleasure.
Although we requested an investigation from local authorities as soon as we became aware of fiscal inaccuracies, we nonetheless apologize to the community for our failings in not providing better oversight. We have adopted new fiscal policies and procedures to ensure that this does not happen again.
We also want the public to know that we are very confident in the ability, honesty and commitment of our new Director Tracy Bailey, whose dedication to literacy and to children is known throughout the community, to manage our affairs, and with the assistance of her and our team members, we believe the Boys and Girls Club will flourish, and will once again make this community proud.
In closing, we would like to thank the State Law Enforcement Division and especially Attorney General Alan Wilson for their efforts to bring this forward to an indictment. We ask that each of you continue to support the youth of Myrtle Beach and our efforts to positively impact their futures.
