Impacting Families Through Boys & Girls Clubs Programs
Many of our families hold multiple jobs, face financial challenges, and encounter a multitude of hardships. Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County provides an affordable, reliable and quality youth development program, eliminating worry of financial burden, safety and supervision.
Outside of their families and school, if a child is given opportunity and encouragement to do their best in school and in other areas of their lives, families benefit. Research shows that parent involvement in after school programs provides the same benefits to families as parent involvement in the regular school day. After school programs including the Boys & Girls Clubs often present a gateway into the school for many parents.
All families need a number of supportive elements in their lives to help their children develop into productive adults. Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County provides that extra support, and has a direct impact on families by providing a choice, giving opportunity and nurturing the good in every child.
Alternating between Family Fun Nights and Family Educational Opportunities, Family Nights strive to provide top-notch family programming in a safe and comfortable setting.
Parents and relatives of Club members are invited to be a part of the team that makes it all happen! Committee members will work with the Club Director and the Family Services Core Area Director to reach out to other Club families and plan exciting programs and special events!
Project FACT (Fathers And Children Together) is a grassroots, community-based initiative developed and implemented through the Boys and Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County. The program was successfully piloted at Max M. Fisher Boys & Girls Club in Riviera Beach in 2019 with support from The Jim Moran Foundation. A generous three-year grant to take Project FACT to scale in central Palm Beach County was awarded by The Jim Moran Foundation in 2020 in celebration of the foundation’s rich 20-year legacy of meeting the ever-changing needs of South Florida. With the help of a grant from Impact 100, Project FACT expanded to Boys & Girls Clubs of Boca Raton and Delray Beach in 2021. The program seeks to empower and mobilize fathers and father figures to become more engaged in their children’s lives, improve fathers’ parenting skills, and to improve the academic engagement of the children of fathers who actively participate in the program. Services include weekly programs for boys and young men, fatherhood curriculum for fathers, including group sessions covering mental health and family law services, and annual Fathers & Daughters Dinner & Dance and FatherFest, an affirmation and celebration of fathers and their children!
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County has provided a wide variety of nationally recognized and impact driven programs throughout the years and partners with numerous other service providers, such as the Palm Beach County Health Department, Literacy Coalition, local universities, and many others to enhance the learning opportunities of the youth served.
