Yesterday (7/16/15) saw the Senate confirm President Obama's nomination of 2010-11 National Youth of the Year Mona Dixon to the Corporation for National and Community Service's board of directors. CNCS is the federal agency that runs programs such as AmeriCorps and the Social Innovation Fund. Mona is living proof that Boys & Girls Clubs save and change lives. As a child, she and her family often lived in homeless shelters – and sometimes in the streets. She found a home at the Boys & Girls Clubs of the East Valley in Tempe, Arizona. Today, Mona is pursuing her master's degree in Communication Studies at Arizona State University. She also serves on the board for the East Valley Club.
