The Boys & Girls Club is a safe place where children can learn, grow, build lasting friendships and develop a solid foundation for their future. All club programs are based on our youth development strategy so they provide youth with a sense of belonging, usefulness, influence, and competence.
A moral compass- In a positive environment, children develop coping skills that help them avoid destructive influences. By making healthy life choices, they learn to live with integrity and without fear in a fast-paced, complex world.
A thirst for learning - Education is a lifelong process. At the Boys & Girls Club, children develop a desire for knowledge—and the power that comes with it. Through educational programs like homework help, and tutoring with certified teachers with an emphasis on science, reading and math, our young people are provided the help they need to succeed.
A healthy attitude - Prevention of negative behaviors is critical to sound youth development. The Club provides youth with the necessary skills, resources and self-esteem to avoid societal ills and make healthy choices—for life.
A sense of empowerment- By creating an environment where independent thought is not only prized but nurtured, the Club fosters in youth a sense of personal strength and conviction. That, in turn, leads to the development of character and, ultimately, the power to influence others.
