As the Boys & Girls Club of Pasadena reaches its 82nd year serving the children and youth of the Pasadena area, two new members have been added to its Board of Directors: Candace McMullin and Morgan Chong Kim. Both new members bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Board. Candace McMullin serves as the Director of Board Support and Provider Enrollment at Kaiser Permanente – Southern California Permanente Medical Group. She has extensive professional experience and significant executive leadership accomplishments in business and philanthropy, along with a strong history of successful collaboration with executive boards and committees. Candace previously held professional positions with Huntington Memorial Hospital; Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP; and the University of Southern California.
Morgan Chong Kim has been working in the education and youth development field for more than 20 years, with leadership positions at The Posse Foundation, Inc., AmeriCorps/Local Conservation Corps, and most recently The Youth Center at St James. She served as an Executive Leadership Coach and Training Facilitator through the National Service Leadership Institute, providing leadership training and management coaching to Executive Directors and Senior Managers who administered national service youth programs. In addition, Morgan has served as a Diversity Facilitator/Trainer providing related training and curriculum development to non-profit youth organizations.
“We are excited to welcome Candace and Morgan to the Board, and look forward to serving together. Each of them adds unique perspective to our work and we are grateful to have them join us,” said Boys & Girls Club of Pasadena Board Chair, Brian Spaulding.
Since 1937, the Boys & Girls Club of Pasadena has enriched the lives of young people in the community, enabling them to reach their full potential as productive, caring, healthy, and responsible citizens. Serving more than 1,900 youth, ages 6 – 18 annually, BGCP focuses on Academic Success, Healthy Lifestyle, and Good Character and Leadership. The Club experience fills the gap between school and home – year-round – providing a welcoming, safe, and positive environment in which kids and teens have fun, participate in life-changing programs, make friends and find encouragement with caring adults. The Club operates two locations in Pasadena: Slavik Branch on E. Del Mar Blvd., and Mackenzie-Scott Branch on N. Fair Oaks Avenue. https://www.bgcpasadena.org/
