OUR CORE BELIEFS
Youth from disadvantaged circumstances should be the focus of our special attention.
We should make every effort to minimize barriers so that all youth can participate in our Clubs on an equal basis.
A competent and caring staff, working with committed volunteers, is our most essential resource.
Having fun is an important component of youth development.
All youth should be taught and encouraged to serve their communities.
Leadership and Guidance in Behavior and Attitude
Four key characteristics define the essence of a Boys & Girls Club. All are critical in exerting positive impact on the life of a child.
Dedicated Youth Facility
The Boys & Girls Club is a place, an actual neighborhood-based building, designed solely for youth programs and activities.
Open Throughout the Year
The Club is open every day, after school, during the long days of summer when school is not in session and on various weekends, when the kids have free time and need positive, productive outlets.
Every Club has full-time, trained youth development professionals, providing positive role models and mentors. Volunteers provide key supplementary support.
Available to All Youth
Clubs reach out to kids who cannot afford, or may lack access to, other community programs. Dues are always low and scholarships are available. No child or family is ever turned away because of their inability to pay.
