Why the Boys and Girls Club?

Our Core Programs

Core Programs engage young people in activities with adults, peers and family members that enable them to reach their full potential. Based on the interests and needs of the boys and girls they serve, Clubs offer diverse program activities in these five areas. 

Character and Leadership

Empower youth to become global citizens who support and influence their Club and community, sustain meaningful relationships, develop a positive self-image and respect their own and others’ cultural identities.

Education and Career Development

Enable youth to become proficient in basic education disciplines, set goals, explore careers, prepare for employment and embrace technology to achieve success in a career.

Health and Life Skills

Develop young people’s capacity to engage in positive behaviors that nurture their own well-being, set personal goals and live successfully as self-sufficient adults.

The Arts

Encourage youth to develop their creativity and cultural awareness through knowledge and appreciation of the visual arts, crafts, performing arts and creative writing.
