Director of Teen Services
Amy Hill started at the Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence in 2016 as the Director of Teen Services. Her background and experience comes from working as a high school special education teacher (North Carolina) and as the Supervisor of Juvenile Intake, including all prevention and diversion programs, at The Shelter, Inc. in Lawrence. Amy earned her Masters in Social Work with an emphasis in child and family therapy at the University of Kansas (2008), and her Bachelor’s in sociology and criminal justice with a minor in special education from Emporia State (2003).
Her talents well exceed the workplace, considering she excels at baking and car dancing. Rumor has it, she is also a pro at making elephant sounds. Amy’s favorite Lawrence activities include: enjoying some Tad’s, walking downtown with her dog and watching all of her extended family members play sports. Amy lives in Lawrence with her seven-year-old boxer, Atticus.
What makes the Boys & Girls Club special:
“I love working with teens! They make me smile and laugh every single day. BGC is such a fun, positive place for teens to go and I’m glad to be a part of it!”
Words to live by:
“Every child deserves a champion. An adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.” – Rita Pierson
