Boys & Girls Club Regional Merger Includes Door County Branch

The Boys & Girls Club of Door County and the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Green Bay, which includes the Boys & Girls Club of Shawano, are merging as one organization effective March 1. 

This past summer, the Door County club entered into a management agreement with the Green Bay club regarding support for key administrative functions. All current locations will remain open; no disruption of staff or management personnel is expected; and each club will retain its name and branding, though a new name is being determined for the new regional corporation comprising the three entities. 

“While we believe strongly in the power of coming together, great care is being taken to ensure that both clubs remain connected to their respective communities,” said Erich Pfiefer, board chair for the Boys & Girls Club of Door County. “These are organizations with long-standing histories that serve unique communities, and it is vital that this remains at the forefront of our work. Through this process, we have discovered that our organizational cultures and missions are far more common than they are different. We are committed to providing the same high-quality service that has been the hallmark of both organizations for decades.” 

The combined organization will now be one of the region’s largest youth-development agencies, serving more than 3,000 youth annually. The expanded organization will be more sustainable and increase opportunities for staff members’ professional growth and development.
