Bland said, “The mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of Fauquier -- to help youth, especially those who need us most, build confidence, develop character and acquire the skills needed to become productive, civic-minded, responsible adults -- speaks to me because I am from this community and I know what we can accomplish when we all work together toward a common goal for our kids and their future.  

My vision for the club,” he said, “is to make it a safe and fun place for youth outside of school and to offer activities that are ‘fun with purpose’ -- and that purpose is our mission.”
