New Resources Available on the AMBER Alert Tribal Database

AMBER Alert, or America's Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response, was first introduced in the United States in 1996. As a system designed to create public awareness of a missing child, AMBER Alert also serves as a prevention resource, deterring would-be predators, and sometimes causing offenders to release a child when they discover one has been issued.

Recently, Fox Valley Technical College developed a series of resources regarding AMBER Alert in Indian Country. These resources were developed to be used by law enforcement, youth development workers, and the broader community across a series of topics all focusing on protecting tribal youth. They can all be found on the Tribal Database. Visit the database to read up and share these safety and prevention resources with your Club staff!

2017 Native Spirit Award Winners

During the 2017 Native Summit in Ft. Myers, Florida, regional and national Native Spirit Award Winners were announced. The Native Spirit Award is the most prestigious honor Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s Native Services Unit presents to Club staff. It recognizes an individual in each region who most exemplifies service to members and their families, passion and commitment to their work, creativity and imagination, and support of the community.

Nominations for the award are submitted by Club Executives. From there the judges select a winner at each regional Native Learning Event where they receive $250 for themselves and $250 for their Club. Out of the group of regional winners, BGCA staff selects one nominee as a National winner. National winners then receive $500 for themselves and $500 for the Club. Regional winners were Fenton Jones from the Boys & Girls Club of the Penobscot Nation, Shelly Davis from the Boys & Girls Club of Chelsea, Candice Leapley from the Boys & Girls Club of Bay Mills, Angela DiCicco from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale, and Sesilynn Schleusener from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southcentral Alaska. Congratulations to all of the regional Native Sprit Award Winners!
