Our guest speaker this week was Gabrielle Webster, a visionary leader and youth development expert serving as President and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington (BGCGW), and a long-time partner to our Rotary Club.  She has fueled unprecedented growth for BGCGW, exceeding financial goals and achieving record accomplishments, including leading a $30 million comprehensive campaign and tripling the number of Clubs in the metro area.  Under Gabrielle’s leadership, BGCGW has become one of the top 5% of BGCA affiliates nationally and initiated the flagship Center of Transformation at the Nation’s Boys & Girls Club, designed to pilot innovative programs across local sites and within the BGCA movement.

Our Club holds dear a special relationship of the BGCGW. We are stewards of a fund established many years ago with a bequest from Rotarian Frank Jelleff, who, as a Rotarian, had helped found a forerunner of the BGCGW, the Jelleff Club which still exists. The proceeds of the Jelleff Fund, administered by our Rotary Foundation of Washington, DC, are used uniquely to make grants to the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Washington.
🧒👶🏾🧒🏻👶🏻
Gabrielle brings extensive leadership experience from the nonprofit and public sectors, previously raising over $220 million in various leadership roles. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from Xavier University and a Master of Physical Chemistry degree from Clark Atlanta University.  Gabrielle is also a graduate of the Leadership Greater Washington program and was awarded a Harvard
Business School Executive Education Certificate for Strategic Agility and Inclusive Leadership. She and her husband reside in Upper Marlboro, Maryland and they have one daughter.
