Join the Center for the Advancement of Social Entrepreneurship (CASE) at Duke University for a fireside chat with Lorraine Orr, COO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

Lorraine Orr serves as Chief Operations Officer. She leads field services and activities across the Boys & Girls Club Movement, with a focus on strengthening the capacity and sustainability of Clubs. She is also responsible for the Movement-wide advancement of youth and Club metrics; programs; and child safety and protection strategies. In addition, she oversees leadership development for Clubs and BGCA national staff. Lorraine also provides direct support, counsel, information, input and feedback to the National Area Council Committee. She drives significant national partnerships to advance BGCA’s mission, and works closely with other senior leaders to develop and execute key strategies and initiatives that drive organizational objectives.

Lorraine joined BGCA in May 1997. She has held several field service roles, including Regional Vice President for the Southeast Region, and her most recent position of Senior Vice President, Field Operations. Prior to her work with BGCA, Lorraine was the Chief Professional Officer of the local Boys & Girls Club in Greensboro, North Carolina. Lorraine’s leadership and commitment to youth have been recognized both locally and nationally. Among these honors is the coveted “Others” Award, which she received in 2015. She has also received Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s National Professional Service Award, The Professional Association’s Contribution to the Profession Award for the Southeast Region, and the National W.
