Belonging to a Boys and Girls Club is often a life-changing experience. Children can build healthy, supportive relationships with caring adult role models, having deeply positive influence on the life path they choose. Clubs also encourage healthy, respectful relationships with peers and family members.
Each Club location has trained, dedicated staff and volunteers. They provide children and youth, from preschool to young adulthood, with programs in physical recreation, nutrition, technology, the arts, personal development and more.
Clubs provide families with regularly available, structured, supervised services. Programs are offered primarily during the after-school hours when studies have shown that young people are most vulnerable to victimization and becoming drawn into anti-social behaviours. Many Clubs also offer programs during evenings and weekends.
Many Clubs provide meals, family support programs, emergency shelter and other supports to children, youth and families in need. Club fees are affordable and are subsidized or waived for families in need.
Clubs are open to all regardless of race, religion, social or economic status. Wherever possible Clubs offer accessible buildings for those who are disabled.
Clubs help prepare children and youth for life by helping them to discover and develop their abilities and skills, building confidence and competence.
Club staff also builds self-esteem in kids by empowering youth to help shape programs and share their ideas. Through these opportunities, youth are given the chance to develop life and leadership skills and to learn how to contribute to Clubs and their communities.
