Join Our Team!

Hands in huddleBud Wilkinson states, “If a team is to reach its potential, each player must be willing to subordinate his personal goals to the good of the team.”

Some sports teams seem to embrace an everyone-for-themselves or independent individual mindset. Others weave the attitude of subordination and teamwork into the fabric of everything they do. 

Notre Dame and Penn State Athletic Departments don’t put the names of the players on their football jerseys. Former Notre Dame Coach, Lou Holtz once said, “At Notre Dame, we believed in interlocking and creating an environment of solidarity. “ND” is all the identification you needed…if your priority is the team rather than yourself, what else do you need?”

Winning teams have players who put the good of the team ahead of themselves. They want to play in their area of strength, but they’re willing to do whatever it takes to take care of the team. They are willing to sacrifice their individual role for the greater good of the team.

This Team Concept is a value that will be foundational to the design and implementation of the new care model, The Waccamaw Way. Integration of The Waccamaw Way into B&GH culture is of utmost importance. To go forward in a healthy direction, we must be willing to adopt and adapt to this value. While we have many different programs and departments throughout the agency they must operate as a Team to provide the best care possible for children.

As the pandemic comes to an end, we want to invite you to join our team as a volunteer, employee or donor. You can be a valuable team member with the mindset that we are one tribe…Boys and Girls Homes of North Carolina. Like the human body, we are ONE but made of many parts and in order for the ONE to work properly, ALL parts must work together to take care of the whole.

Our words and deeds demonstrate to those whom we serve that we, as volunteers, donors, and program/service providers, are on the same page, play as a team, and are moving in the same direction of providing an environment of care that promotes health, healing and hope!  Join us today! 

Rev. Ricky Creech is the President/CEO of Boys and Girls Homes of North Carolina.
