We take great pride in helping to shape the future generation of Bangor. Our team is comprised of dedicated community members who bring years of childcare, education, and youth development experience to the table as well as young adults, including high school and college students, who bring compassion, energy, and enthusiasm to their work as Youth Development Professionals.

Catherine Myatt, Executive Director

Cat joined Bangor Housing in 2012 as the Director of Community Outreach, working to create and implement programs that would enhance the experiences and opportunities of families in the public housing community. In 2014, she opened the Boys & Girls Club of Bangor, a positive place for kids that has quickly become a second home, an extended family, and a life-changer for many. The club offers hope and opportunity to children and families who have had unequal access to enriching experiences outside of school, some who felt stuck or left out and didn't know where to turn. After an extensive background in youth development, Cat envisions the Club as a place where youth will find support, overcome barriers, and reach their fullest potential. 

Heather Fidler, Director of Operations & Impact

She brings many strengths to our club with her bachelor's degree in Elementary Education, years of teaching experience and strong background working with youth. She continues to use her expertise in academic strategies to make a positive impact in the outcomes of the youth at the Club.  In her free time, Heather loves all things family and child centered.

Michelle Thai, Executive Assistant

Michelle was excited to join Boys & Girls Club of Bangor in 2023 after spending years staying at home with her children while they were young and working part time as an administrative assistant. She has a background in Child Development and Family Relations and is excited to combine that with her years of experience as an administrative assistant to be back working in the field she earned an education in and has a passion for. She enjoys efficiency and organization and hopes that those qualities will help all the administrative staff with anything they need to accomplish which in turn will help the program succeed and thrive. In her free time she enjoys attending her kids’ many sporting events and photography.

Grace started working at the Boys & Girls Club of Bangor as a Junior Counselor in the summer of 2018 and since then has worked her way up the ladder to a Club Director! She is currently working on her Bachelor’s degree in Mental Health and Human Services. Grace loves to work alongside the YDP's to ensure high interest and educational activities for the afterschool youth to continue their school day learning in the safest, most inviting atmosphere possible. As our Club Director, she works hard to ensure the program is a place where all staff and members feel welcome and included.

Julia Guerrette, Teen Program Director

Julia started working at the Boys & Girls Club in 2019 as a Youth Development Professional. She graduated with a Bachelors in Psychology from Husson University in 2021 and we are so thankful she returned to the Club as our Teen Program Director in 2022.  Teens and tweens are her passion and she brings such positivity and enthusiasm to her work. Julia looks forward to seeing the teen center grow and create life-enhancing programs that prepare youth for success in high school and beyond.
