BGAC In Chicago, USA, for Boys & Girls Clubs of America Conference

BGCA_ MrGlenn Permuy109th Annual BGCA Conference

The week of May 11-16 saw the Boys & Girls Activity Centers of Hungary participate in the 109th annual conference of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. As the only Boys & Girls Club operating in Europe, the Hungarian contingent was greatly outnumbered by international delegates from Africa and the Americas, but they proudly represented Hungary and Europe.

Director Mónika Horváth, Early Childhood Educational Expert Nóra Erdélyi and ESL Specialist Tamara Bosnyák represented BGAC in Chicago, USA, for a week of seminars, workshops and a trip to a Boys & Girls Club in Chicago.

“The trip was very productive,” said Monika Horvath. “We will be able to directly apply the lessons, techniques and information we learned at the conference to our programs here in Hungary, making them better and more effective at giving children here in Hungary a bilingual opportunity to learn and grow in a safe, positive environment.”

This is the second year in a row that BGAC has attended the conference of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
