Our Programs in Boys & Girls Clubs
Boys & Girls Clubs offers a wide-range of After-School and Summer programs for youth ages 6-18 that focus on three key critical outcomes:
Healthy lifestyle programs like Triple Play, SMART Moves, Soccer for Success, Healthy Places Active Spaces, Passport to Manhood, Cooking Matters, sports leagues and more help youth and teens learn the building blocks of a healthy lifestyle, incorporate healthy snacks, meals and portion sizes, avoid drugs, alcohol and tobacco, and build fundamental athletic skills to help them grow up healthy and strong.
Boys & Girls Clubs education programs are a cornerstone of our positive youth development strategy. Programs like Project Learn, Power Hour, G.O.A.L., the Collaborative S.T.E.M. Initiative (CSI), See Spot Read, Get Performing Academically (GPA), Goals for Graduation and Career Launch help kids strengthen basic academic skill, build confidence, and build a road map for success that helps them stay on track to graduate high school and set the stage for life-long learning through college and beyond.
Good Character & Citizenship programs like Keystone Club, Torch Club, Youth of the Year, Youth for Unity and more help children and teens make a positive investment in their community through service to the Club and others. These programs reinforce positive character traits and help youth build key skills like personal responsibility, teamwork, time management, conflict resolution and appreciation for diversity.
