The Greenwood Boys & Girls Club is one of the oldest chartered Club sites in Mississippi. The Club first opened over 30 years ago as a Boys Club. Since that time, the Greenwood Club has gone from a stand-alone Club to a part of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Mississippi Delta. Thousands of young people in Leflore County have called the Greenwood Club their own.
The Greenwood Club is a wonderful example of a Club operating in "the Boys & Girls Clubs' Way." Club members participate in the five Core Program Areas, beginning each day by reciting the BGCA Code in Assembly and moving into snacks and Power Hour before breaking off into various programs.
The list of programs offered is long and varied. Attention is paid to the age/gender appropriateness of the participants. Staff also pay attention to the needs and interests of each Club member and work diligently to develop a healthy and dependable relationship with each Member and their family members. This type of engagement helps ensure that our Members know they can rely upon and trust our staff, and our team knows our Members and their families and have an open line of communication.
The Greenwood Club is proud to have an ample dedicated teen space. Recent funding from The United Way of Leflore County will allow us to divide additional Club areas into Learning Centers that support the large variety of programming offered.
