NAR teams up with Boys and Girls Clubs of America

WASHINGTON – Dec. 10, 2015 – The National Association of Realtors® announced that it’s partnering with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) to show support for the nation’s youth.
Starting in 2016, NAR and BGCA will collaborate to find positive ways to impact communities across the country, with the help of local and state associations that team up with their neighborhood clubs to determine volunteer opportunities and needed resources.
NAR and BGCA have launched a co-branded web page at realtor.org/BGCA that will serve as a resource for associations and members. It includes a BGCA club locator, tool kits for getting involved, and a list of sample volunteer activities.
“BGCA has been close to my heart for many years, and as I begin my NAR presidential term, I am very excited that Realtors will be partnering with their local clubs and offering their time and resources to make a difference in the lives of their communities’ children,” says NAR President Tom Salomone, broker-owner of Real Estate II Inc. in Coral Springs, Florida.
BGCA is a youth development organization that serves nearly 4 million kids and teens annually in the U.S. State and local Realtor associations will be offering time and resources to aid their local groups, with activities ranging from cleanup days to holiday-themed parties to tutoring assistance and career days.
“We are proud to partner with NAR, state, and local Realtor associations and the more than 1 million Realtors nationwide,” says Jim Clark, president and CEO of BGCA. “This partnership will have an immediate and profound impact on clubs, communities, and most importantly, young people across the country.”
According to NAR, associations that participate in the BGCA partnership may be able to meet their “Community Involvement” or “Community Investment” requirement under NAR’s Organizational Alignment/Core Standards policy.
