Masters and Mentors


This prestigious award is the highest honor bestowed on Boys & Girls Club professionals by The Professional Association. The Masters and Mentors award was created to recognize and honor exceptional professionals who dedicate their lives to Clubs, have been integral to the success of the Boys & Girls Club Movement, and have shown a commitment to professional growth and excellence. Nominations can be submitted by all current BGCA and Club Staff. Candidates are nominated based on one or more of the following:

  • Contribution to the Movement over a sustained period
  • Successful mentoring of others
  • Demonstrated excellence in the Boys & Girls Club full-time profession


For information on nominating future candidates, please refer to:


At Boys & Girls Clubs of America's National Conference, Club professionals of the Movement have been installed as Masters and Mentors of the Academy of Boys & Girls Club Professionals. As testimony to the Academy's belief that "enduring lessons are taught by example," these past and present Boys & Girls Club professionals were installed at eight historic induction ceremonies. We proudly present the Academy of Boys & Girls Club Professionals' Masters and Mentors, a group with more than 1,000 combined years of service to youth.
