Mimi LeClair, Boys & Girls Clubs Chicago
Posted Aug 22, 2019
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago is so much more than a place for kids to go during the out-of-school hours. Mimi LeClair, President and CEO, discusses the organization's holistic approach that serves each child’s mind, body and soul. The Clubs are truly life-saving, life-changing and life-long in its impact on Chicago’s youth. As an organization that started in 1902, our goal has always been to continue to grow the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago enabling us to serve as many youth in our area as possible, especially those most in need.
