|What kinds of programs and activities does Boys & Girls Clubs offer?|
We offer programs in five core areas:
1. Character and Leadership Development:
Kids learn to be leaders through service to their Club and community.
Our programs empower kids to sustain meaningful relationships with
others, develop a positive self-image, participate in the democratic process
and respect their own and others' cultural identities.
2. Education and Career Development:
Kids can explore education and career opportunities with the guidance
of mentors and role models. BGCI's trained staff and quality programs
also provide help with homework, reinforce math and science skills,
teach computer skills and take members to visit local and out-of-state
3. Health and Life Skills:
Programs are designated to teach kids how to engage in positive behaviors
that nurture their own well-being, set and reach personal goals and live
successfully as self-sufficient adults.
4. The Arts:
Kids can express their creativity and talent at the Clubs. We offer programs
that include daily arts and crafts, ceramics, painting, dance, music, and
woodworking, just to name a few.
5. Sports, Fitness and Recreation:
Kids build not only healthy bodies, but stronger character and
sportsmanship, as well. They can choose from team sports, such as
basketball and football, or individual activities, like martial arts, dance,
weight training, swimming and a lot more.
