Program Description

The Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence offers members a wide range of programs, events, field trips, and recreational and educational activities. Quality mentoring and academic support is also provided. All programs are divided into three core areas that are meant to develop specific skills or strengths. Together they comprise a set of programs that contribute to the formation of well-rounded, socially responsible and motivated young citizens of the community. By the time our members enter the "real world," they are well-equipped to conquer it.

  • Character Building: Youth empowerment, character building, and leadership development are the basis for our programming. We mold our youth into responsible citizens who take pride in their heritage and community. Our youth will more likely participate in the democratic process.
  • Healthy Living: The programs in this area help promote healthy minds, bodies, and social relationships through education, mentoring and peer leadership.
  • Academic Success: By emphasizing the importance of education, offering academic support and encouraging the exploration of different careers and opportunities for higher education, our youth learn to set goals and nurture aspirations for the future.
  • As a program, our main focus is on academic success which enables our students to continue onto the path of higher education. Our Think Ahead Thursdays are designed specifically for high school students who are applying for college. We offer as much support to our seniors applying for college as we can. Currently, we are trying to implement a program for our alumni as well who are in college, in order to support them throughout higher education.
