Direct Contact Information:


Welcome to an exciting journey at the Boys & Girls Club at the OC. My name is Ashley Person and I am thrilled to be a part of this wonderful program, working alongside your children. With over 10 years of experience in directly engaging and supporting young minds and almost 3 years specifically at Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Joseph County, I am genuinely enthusiastic about inspiring and enabling all our young members to realize their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible citizens.  The Boys & Girls Clubs holds a special place in my heart, and I am dedicated to ensuring every child's growth and development.

As we embark on this adventure together, I want to extend my open-door policy, inviting you to reach out to me anytime with your thoughts, concerns, or questions. Parental involvement is essential to our mission's success, and I wholeheartedly commit to working hand in hand with you to provide the best possible experience for your child. From engaging activities to fostering a safe and nurturing environment, we have a lot in store for our young participants. I believe in the potential of every child, and I am determined to create an atmosphere where they can thrive, learn, and form lasting friendships. Once again, thank you for entrusting your child to the Boys & Girls Clubs program. Together, let's make this an unforgettable experience that leaves a positive impact on their lives for years to come.
