Boys & Girls Clubs programs are proven programs that have been used for over 100 years to help youth develop the character, skills, education, values and behaviors that enable them to succeed in life. Each Club features:

  • Fun, Safe, Positive Environments – Boys & Girls Clubs aim to create a strong sense of belonging for its members, making each Club feel welcoming and inviting. It’s important to provide stability, consistency and a sense of physical and emotional safety.
  • Power Hour – For an hour after school, members receive 1 on 1, small group or large group homework help, tutoring and time to help members develop good study habits.
  • Daily Hot Meals – Nutritious, well balanced meals served with a course of Healthy Habits programming designed to help members develop lifelong healthy habits in their diet, exercise and life decisions.
  • Supportive Relationships – Staff members and volunteers serve as mentors who teach Boys & Girls Club members how to respect and appreciate others, work well in teams and indivdually, as well as provide them with guidance through their interactions and conflicts.
  • Recognition for Members – Each Boys & Girls Club supports its members’ self-worth and self confidence by providing them with positive reinforcement and by showcasing their achievements.
