Rep. Bill Hitchens has again been selected to serve as the finance chairman for the “Y” Clubs of Georgia in Effingham County for 2018. The Finance Drive is currently underway to support the “Y” Club programs in middle and high schools in Georgia through Hi-Y, Tri-Hi-Y and Co-ed "Y" clubs.

"Y" Clubs are leadership development, service-oriented faith-based school clubs for students in grades 6-12. Efforts are underway to involve all of the local schools in “Y”-Clubs, where they will conduct monthly school and community service projects. Those students will also have the chance to participate in a variety of conferences geared towards government education and Christian character.

The “Y” Clubs of Georgia was chartered in 1929 to develop leadership skills and a sense of moral and civic responsibility in middle school and high school students throughout the state. Youth-in-Government programs, leadership training and character education initiatives based on Christian principles are offered at the district and statewide levels to complement the work of service-oriented, school-based "Y" Clubs. For more information on the “Y” Club, visit or call 770-455-9622.
