Ms. Synthia Hoover, has served as Unit Director at the Greenwood Club since 2017.  Since that time, hundreds of Leflore County youth have been Members of the Greenwood Club and benefited from the support and mentorship provided by Synthia and her youth development staff which includes Program Coordinator, Lajaun Gillion, and Program Assistant, Damonze White.

The Greenwood Boys & Girls Club is one of the oldest chartered Club sites in Mississippi.  The Club first opened over 30 years ago as a Boys Club.  Since that time the Greenwood Club has gone from a stand alone Club to a part of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Mississippi Delta.  Literally thousands and thousands of young people in Leflore County have called the Greenwood Club their own.

 
The Green Club is a wonderful example of a Club operating in "the Boys & Girls Clubs' Way".  Club members participate in the 5 Core Program Areas, beginning each day by reciting the BGCA Code in Assembly, and moving into Snacks and Power Hour before breaking off into various SMART Kids Programs, Money Matters, Power Hour, TriplePlay, TorchClub, ClubTech, Youth of the Month, Passport to Manhood, Career Launch, STEM DIY, and other programs like Cal Ripken's Badges for Baseball, our new partnership with Special Olympics Mississippi, Community Service Projects, visual and music arts. 
     
       
The list of programs offered is long and varied.  Attention is paid to the age/gender appropriateness of the participants.  Ms. Hoover and her staff also pay attention to the needs and interests of each Club member and work diligently to develop a healthy and dependable relationship with each Member and their family members.  This type of engagement helps ensure that our Members know they can rely upon and trust our staff and our staff knows our Members and their families and have an open line of communication.
     

The Greenwood Club is proud to have a large dedicated teen space.  Recent funding from The United Way of Leflore County will allow us to divide additional areas of the Club into Learning Centers which support the large variety of programming offered.
