PROGRAMS

Boys & Girls Clubs nurture young people's self-esteem by instilling in them a sense of belonging, usefulness, influence and competence; we do this daily by providing young people the opportunity to build relationships with caring adult professionals and fun, age-appropriate, well-rounded programming. Our nationally recognized programs are carefully designed to support our achievement in Youth Development Outcomes for young people leaving our Clubs at age 18. Below are the areas our program focuses on.
  
Education & Career Programs

These programs help youth create aspirations for the future, providing opportunities for career exploration and educational enhancement.

Character & Leadership Programs

Helping youth become responsible, caring citizens and acquire skills for participating in the democratic process is the main thrust of these programs. They also develop leadership skills and provide opportunities for planning, decision-making, contributing to Club and community and celebrating our national heritage.

Health & Life Skills

These initiatives develop young people's capacity to engage in positive behaviors that nurture their own well-being, set personal goals and live successfully as self-sufficient adults.

The Arts Programs

Programs in this core area enable youth to develop their creativity and cultural awareness through knowledge and appreciation of the visual arts, crafts, performing arts and creative writing.

Sports, Fitness and Recreation

These Club programs help develop fitness, a positive use of leisure time, reduction of stress, appreciation for the environment and social and interpersonal skills.

Specialized Programs

These initiatives focus on meeting the significant and specific needs identified within Boys & Girls Clubs. Their broad scope complements several or all of our core program areas.
