David Woolpy

Executive Director

For the last 17 years David Woolpy has dedicated his professional life to the betterment of children with the Boys & Girls Club. His experience in youth development, however, did not begin with the Club. Even before receiving a B.A. from Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana, David started coaching his former high school diving team, a job he continued for over 20 seasons.

Throughout his Club career, David has been instrumental in growing the Boys & Girls Club movement and improving the lives and futures of children. During his tenure, David’s former organization went from two clubs, serving 150 members to five clubs, serving over 600 children and teens daily.

His former Club and staff won numerous national Boys & Girls Club awards, and David received the prestigious National Professional of the Year Award in 2016 from the TPA, the Professional Association of Boys & Girls Club employees. In August, 2020, David took on the new role of Executive Director for the Boys & Girls Club of Rutland County, where he plans to see the Rutland Club thrive and prosper.
