The way young people spend their after-school hours can significantly impact their success in school and life. However, 11.3 million kids and teens leave school each day with nowhere to go. The guidance and supervision of trained, caring professionals during these critical hours can greatly affect academic performance and graduation rates.
Boys & Girls Clubs provide a safe, supportive environment and quality after-school programs that support what kids learn during the school day to increase their overall academic success. As we prepare to start the new school year, your gift of school supplies, funds, or time spent volunteering at a Club in your community will help ensure that kids and teens have the necessary resources to achieve great futures.
