Dreams have no limits

Although today’s young people are facing tremendous challenges, dreams have no limits when kids have Clubs. Nearly 100% of Club teens expect to graduate from high school this year, with 8 in 10 applying for college.

Now that’s something to celebrate.

Next stop: Great futures

“The Club helped me think bigger, dream bigger and see what was possible.”
Kris Gibbs-Smith

Club kids prove there’s no limit to how big young people can dream or what they can accomplish when they have the Club.

Essence didn’t have an easy life growing up, but the Club helped her navigate life’s ups and downs. Now, she’s preparing to graduate and pursue her dream of a degree in music education.

Kris didn’t know there were possibilities beyond his neighborhood until he joined the Club. He went from an unconfident kid to an accomplished tech CEO (and that’s just the beginning).

Octavius grew up in a community where there was a lot of violence. He wasn’t a part of it, but could easily have been without the Boys & Girls Club.
