YOUTH DEVELOPMENT APPROACH

Our staff and programs at all of our sites come together to create stability, consistency, and a sense of physical and emotional safety for our members. Our youth development professionals serve each day as positive role models who provide ongoing caring relationships with our youth. They work to develop moral character and instill a sense of belonging, competence, usefulness, and influence. Staff members make the club feel like home, fostering a family atmosphere and creating a sense of ownership for members.

GREAT FUTURES START HERE

Today's youth are facing major obstacles – from high school drop out crisis, to rising rates of childhood obesity, teen pregnancy and gang violence. Boys & Girls Clubs are committed to tackling these problems through proven programs that help young people realize their full potential.

Statistics show that most juvenile crime is committed between the hours of 3pm and 7 pm. and it is by design that this is also the time when Boys & Girls Clubs offer professionally supervised programs keeping kids safe, active and engaged. Our programs are located in areas of our community that have the greatest needs.

Dedicated to helping the kids who need us the most, BGCSL provides a broad range of programs that inspire young people to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. We know that the more frequent a child participates in our program, the greater the impact. Club members are strongly encouraged to participate in our program everyday after school in order to maximize their potential to succeed.
