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 Summit Recap

Boys & Girls Clubs of America's 2017 Native Summit was held November 14-16 in Fort Myers, Florida, and marked the celebration of 25 years of Native Clubs! Organized by the Native Services Unit, Native Club staff came from all over to participate in the Summit, share in each other’s culture, and attend informational breakout sessions.

The celebration started with the presentation of tribal flags by a representative of each tribe. It marked the first of many special moments and was a great way to kick off the event. It was the perfect way to symbolize the diversity within the room while creating a sense of unity among the group. The opening celebration included remarks from the Chair of the Seminole Tribe of Florida, the President of the Navajo Nation, the Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation and a cultural performance from the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Boys & Girls Club Youth.

General sessions were held each morning and afternoon of the Summit. Speakers at these sessions included prominent partners and ambassadors of Native Clubs. At the morning general session on the second day the national Native Spirit Award was proudly presented to Angela DiCicco from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale.
