Great Things Happening At The Granville Unit!

STEM Is In!

It’s safe to say that STEM is becoming a fast favorite at the Granville Boys & Girls Club! Our club members are specifically enjoying science projects this month. They have focused on gravity, water, and engineering. Pictured below you can see our club member Alice with her engineering project. Creating structures out of marshmallows develops kids’ engineering skills and enhances their critical thinking. It’s the perfect way for them to keep their EDGE during the school year.

Phillip Chavis

Phillip M Chavis Jr. is a native of Oxford, NC and a graduate of JF Webb High School, part of the Granville County Public School System. In 2012 he obtained a BA in History from Livingstone College and as a student participated in many community outreach programs such as voter registration and Salisbury’s Annual “Big Read” program. He also became an initiate to the Gamma Mu Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. and was a constant Honor Student.
Phillip went on to work as a Pharmacy Tech with Aetna/CVS Insurance. While working with the Triangle Literacy Council, he felt a different calling – one towards the Education and Literacy of youth. Through Triangle Literacy Phillip worked and partnered with the Granville County School System as an Instructor and Project Manager. Three years later, Phillip became acquainted with the Boys and Girls Clubs through their summer outreach program “Summer of Reading & Fun” - which was a program that encouraged summer reading and Educational Enrichment.
Phillip is currently serving as the new Unit Director for the Boys and Girls Club in Granville County, a position that he has been preparing for his entire life! Phillip’s favorite part about the Club is “having the chance to build a one on one relationship with each member, making them feel special and letting them know that they matter and their differences matter.” He also enjoys playing games, laughing, and having dance battles.
