(Mankato, MN) – The Boys & Girls Club of Mankato is unveiling its new name.

Now the Mankato Youth Place “MY Place,” the new name is a reflection of community and youth engagement.

“We are grateful for the support provided by the Boys & Girls Club of Rochester in piloting a club in our community,” said Les Koppendrayer, Board Chair.  The board intends to use that foundation as they prepare for the next step in becoming an independent organization.

The board, leadership, and services offered to young people will remain unchanged.
