The CLUB for YOUth’s team consists of our CEO, Bill Ward, Program Supervisor Melissa Creek, and a multitude of program staff and volunteers. The CLUB has a Board of Directors that acts as fundraisers, advocates, and advisors to the CLUB.

Bill Ward
Bill Ward, Chief Executive Officer
Mr. Bill’s professional career encompasses proven success for over 20 years in business leadership. In 2011, he made the decision that it was time to give back to the community he was raised in and began his career in the non-profit sector as the Service Center Director for The Salvation Army. After 18 months of dynamic growth, Bill was asked to join The CLUB for YOUth as the Chief Executive Officer. Bill saw this opportunity as his “personal grassroots” movement. He believes that development in the success of our children will create stronger economic development success for Kingman. Residents of rural communities, more than ever, need to come together to reach success in these challenging times. Bill is excited to bring his unique talents, extensive experience and strong local ties to the Club to focus on providing a sustainable Club environment for youth in our community. Bill would love to meet with you and share the wonderful, life-changing work we do here at the Club; please give him a call to arrange a tour of the Club and personal meeting.
