Program Description

Boys & Girls Clubs provide a place where all youth, no matter their circumstances, can make great discoveries about themselves and engage in educational and recreational activities.And itâ??s all done in safe environments and led by positive role models and leaders. We meet kids and teens where they are and help them to take steps forward to reach their potential. By focusing on safety, academic support and character development, weâ??re helping youth find â?? and achieve â?? brighter futures. In 2015, Boys & Girls Clubs adopted this program from the YMCA. The program provides individualized attention and scholarship support that will help students successfully graduate from college. In addition, the Clubsâ?? Sponsor-A-Scholar program will give participants opportunities to gain employment experience and access new ways to finance a college degree.
