Since 1949, the Club has provided positive educational, recreational, leadership, and sports programming for youth via quality after-school programs, a summer camp, and additional afternoon programming during the summer for all members. These programs and services are designed to build character and strengthen life skills, resulting in a healthy and safer community. Our Clubs are staffed by paid, highly trained youth development professionals. Through a system of informal guidance, Club staff form strong bonds with young people and help them make smart choices in life. For many Club members, Club staff members are the most influential positive adult role models in their lives. The Club’s programs foster a sense ofbelonging, and competence that builds self-confidence and self-esteem.

Following guidance from the Boys & Girls Club Movement, the Club implements programs in five core areas: The Arts; and Sports, Fitness and Recreation; Character and Leadership Development; Health and Life Skills; and Education and Career Development.Type your paragraph here.
