We are so excited to announce that our very own, Miriam Montes has been selected as one of the 2021 Next Generation of Afterschool Leaders by the National AfterSchool Association (NAA)! NAA sought to highlight emerging young leaders who are active in the broader afterschool community, demonstrate contributions that have started to influence beyond individual programs to entire organizations and communities, are actively engaged in efforts to elevate the afterschool field, have a proven passion for development of themselves and others, and demonstrate persistence in their work to grow as leaders.

Miriam has been a pillar to the Albany Community and the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Capital Area for over 8 years! Go Miriam!!
