Bland named unit director of Boys & Girls Clubs

Jeremy Bland
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Fauquier on Thursday announced the appointment of Jeremy Bland as the new unit director.

Mr. Bland in 2017 joined the club, which led to employment there as a youth development professional and mentor. He co-founded the BGCF Virtual Clubhouse and has worked as an academics assistant, the Passport 2 Manhood Program facilitator and as a member of the Summer Camp Planning Team.

A county native and lifelong resident, he graduated from Fauquier High after attending Taylor Middle School and Bradley Elementary. Mr. Bland earned a bachelor’s degree in hospitality and tourism management at Virginia Tech.

“The mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Fauquier — to help youth, especially those who need us most, build confidence, develop character and acquire skills needed to become productive, civic-minded, responsible adults — speaks to me because I am from this community,” Mr. Bland said. “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 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.”

Club CEO Silvia Moore said: “We are pleased to appoint this seasoned professional as our new club director, with responsibility for carrying out the mission and vision of the organization.”

Founded in 1997, the club serves about 350 children at its Warrenton headquarters and at Cedar Lee Middle School in Bealeton, along with another 100 with outreach programs.
