Community Council

The Community Council is an advisory board that supports, promotes and advocates for their local Boys & Girls Club programs and supports the Boys & Girls Club at county-wide events. Community Council members voice feedback on the how we can expand our services and opportunities, and how we can best further our mission to serve the youth who need us most. 

The Mount Vernon Community Council meets on the 4th Wednesday of each month from 12:00pm – 1:00pm at the Mount Vernon Boys & Girls Club, located next to LaVenture Middle School at 1100 North LaVenture Road. 

We are committed to partnering with schools and other agencies to determine how best to serve local youth. If you are interested in joining our Community Council, please contact Club Director, Angela Freeberg at (360) 428-6995 x33.
