Club Members participate in the 5 Core Program Areas outlined by Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA).
These 5 Core Program Areas are
- Education & Career Development,
- Character & Leadership Development,
- Health & Life Skills Development,
- Sports, Fitness, & Recreation, and
- The Arts.
Each program area is comprised of a variety of age/gender appropriate programs specifically developed to “grow” with the Club member as he or she grows through the Club each year.
Our organization focuses on 5 key areas to meet increased demands and have an even deeper impact on the future of our community’s youth – These areas are:
- Academic Success, and
- Healthy Lifestyles
