WHAT MAKES A BOYS & GIRLS CLUB SPECIAL?
- Dedicated Youth Facility - The Boys & Girls Club is a place for youth ages 6 –18 -- an actual neighborhood-based building -- designed solely for youth programs and activities.
- Open Daily - The Club is open every weekday, after school and during the summer, when kids have free time and need positive, productive outlets.
- Professional Staff - Every Club has full-time, trained youth development professionals, providing positive role models and mentors. Volunteers provide key supplementary support.
Available/Affordable to All Youth - Clubs reach out to kids who cannot afford, or may lack access to, other community programs.
* An Ounce of Prevention... *
It takes more than a big heart to run a great Boys & Girls Club. It takes money! A Boys & Girls Club, on average, spends about $500 per youth per year on all the activities and programs we provide. But consider the alternative. Keeping a young adult in jail costs taxpayers anywhere from $25,000 to $75,000 per year. Boys & Girls Clubs, a proven delinquency prevention program, are one of the best bargains in America.
Boys & Girls Clubs rely on the generosity of donors and volunteers in order to spread provide the programs and activities that our members want and deserve. You can help by donating. We will accept your donation of cash or program supplies. We always can use arts & crafts supplies, games, sports equipment, and even snacks.
