Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA)

Marvin is responsible for efforts to get local Club members engaged in service projects. Before that, he was the Director of Diversity Services at BGCA. He came to the nonprofit sector because “nonprofits advocate for and provide direct services to those who are often overlooked or underserved. The nonprofit sector focuses on serving the needs of people or the environment as opposed to increasing the bottom line or profit margin for investors was key in my decision.”
