Members of the Boys & Girls & Girls Clubs of Austin County/Bellville and their advisers attended the 2018 National Keystone Conference in Atlanta last month. Boys & Girls Clubs of America Keystone program is a premiere teen character & leadership program that helps teens ages 14 to 18 develop good character and positive leadership skills. Teens learn the value of good citizenship and community service and are allowed to participate in four key focus areas: community service, academic success, career preparation and teen outreach. With the many decisions Keystoners must make, they are challenged to become leaders of exceptional character. From the creation of officers and standing commit-tees to the planning and implementation of member-led projects, Keystoners are challenged to become positive leaders of exceptional character. Members attending the conference were Manny Gamboa, Citlali Muniz, Jennifer Cervantes, LaZoria Curry and Haliegh Gideon. Advisers are Q'Tilya Wilson and Jennifer Sailer.
