Mrs. Linda Toy has served as Unit Director at the Itta Bena Club since 2016. Since that time, hundreds of Leflore County youth have been Members of the Itta Bena Club and benefited from the support and mentorship provided by Linda and her youth development staff and volunteers.
The Itta Bena 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 programs: SMART Kids, 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 musical arts.
The list of programs offered is long and varied. Attention is paid to the age/gender appropriateness of the participants. Mrs. Toy and her staff also pay attention to the needs and interests of each Club member. They work diligently to develop a healthy and dependable relationship with each Member and their family members. This engagement helps ensure that our Members know they can rely upon and trust our staff. Our staff knows our Members and their families and has an open line of communication.
