Great Futures Gala

Thank you for supporting Great Futures!

On Friday, October 27, the story continued for Boys and Girls Clubs of the Austin Area. Thanks to the generosity of sponsors, board members, and community partners, we raised $1.3 million to provide life-enhancing programs and services which empower great futures for the thousands of young people we serve.

The evening was filled with inspiring Club Kid stories and a look inside the impact Club Staff make on the lives of kids and families.

As valued members of our community, we hope you will join us at next year’s Great Futures Gala.

Meet Janie

Club Director at IDEA Rundberg

Janie’s extensive career in after-school programming spans 14 years, with 12 of those dedicated to Boys & Girls Club of the Austin Area. Her journey commenced as a Youth Development Professional and progressed through roles as a Program Specialist, Program Director, and she now serves as a Club Director. Having worked across multiple sites throughout the area, Janie’s focus has consistently been on children ranging from Kindergarten to 7th grade. Her unwavering mission is to ensure that every child in her care knows they are cherished, valued, and that their dreams and aspirations are within reach. Janie remains a steadfast supporter, cheering for them from the sidelines, long after they’ve transitioned into adulthood. 


Janie is one more reason why Great Futures Start Here.

We are always looking for partners to champion the mission of BGCAA and be ambassadors for the kids in Austin that would otherwise be left behind.
