Boys & Girls Clubs of America is proud to partner with Fiskars to support BGCA’s Back2School campaign and to encourage more opportunities for Boys & Girls Club members to participate in arts programming.
Fiskars Supports BGCA’s Back2School Campaign and Arts Programs
Arts programs enable youth to develop their creativity and cultural awareness through knowledge and appreciation of the visual arts, crafts, performing arts and creative writing. Studies have shown that at-risk students who have access to the arts in or out of school also tend to have better academic results, better workforce opportunities, and more civic engagement.
With a mission of enabling all young people, especially those who need us most, BGCA is in a unique position to provide access to arts programming, plus the guidance needed to help develop new skills and foster creativity, for youth who might not otherwise have access to these opportunities.
Fiskars Brands sponsored BGCA’s 2015 National Conference and Midwest Youth of the Year Great Futures Celebration and is a partner and supporter of the Back2School campaign. Fiskars’ classroom scissors packaging includes the BGCA logo and information about the partnership.
