Boys & Girls Clubs offer a wide-range of after-school and summer programs for youth ages 6-18 that focus on three key critical outcomes:
Boys & Girls Clubs education programs are the 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), and Goals for Graduation and Career Launch help kids strengthen basic academic skills, build confidence, and create 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 Clubs 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.
The Boys & Girls Clubs provide a safe place to learn, grow, and play – all while having fun! Our seven Clubs in Wake County have many sport-specific and non-sport-specific programs designed to help youth.
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. We strive to teach them about healthy snacks, meals, and portion sizes, plus the importance of avoiding drugs, alcohol, and tobacco. Our Clubs help kids build fundamental athletic skills to help them grow up healthy and strong.
