Many of us are familiar with the quote often attributed to Mahatma Gandhi, “Be the change you want to see in the world.”

Neandra Turner, executive director of the Abbeville Boys & Girls Club, tells that message to the children she serves every day. The quote has become second nature for youths who attend the club after school and during the summer.

“We provide the youth with a safe place for tutoring and other life skills, a place to learn how to be productive citizens,” Turner said. “The Abbeville Boys & Girls Club was established in 2014 and I joined in 2015. The old one from over 10 years ago shut down, and the youth had no place to grow and learn. Our leaders came together and founded the club that serves the area today.”
