Joy Dove officially took over last week as the new Unit Director for the Boys & Girls Club of El Camino Real in Natchitoches. Dove previously worked at the Boys & Girls Club as a youth development specialist for the last 7 years.
Dove will focus on recruiting children in the community and keeping club programming going like tutoring, character building, money management, healthy lifestyles, arts and crafts, and more.
“I’ve always loved my job,” she said. “I’m passionate about reaching kids who need us the most to help them reach their highest potential. I like being a listening ear for them. Just be there for them. Be someone they can depend on. I like giving them a safe place to go to have fun and get good guidance. As the new unit director I look forward to educating more kids in the community about the benefits of the Boys & Girls Club.”
