TreesNC's work with the Central Boys and Girls Club is one of three programs to be featured this week when the City of Asheboro competes for the coveted All-American City Award in Denver, Colorado.
The All-American City award has been presented since 1949 by a nonprofit organization called the National Civic League - just 10 cities in the USA receive the award each year. The All-American City Award celebrates and recognizes cities, towns, counties and tribes that have engaged residents in innovative, inclusive and effective efforts to tackle critical challenges.
The focus of the 2015 All-American City Award is on community efforts to engage and support vulnerable young men and boys. TreesNC's Youth Environmental Service (YES!) program with the members of the Central Boys and Girls Club will be highlighted when the City of Asheboro makes its presentation before the judges in Denver.
We wish Asheboro the very best in this most competitive effort - we appreciate our board chair Bob Langston for adding his high energy presence to the team of thirty youth and adults that will represent Asheboro as they compete for the award.
