Discover how Clubs help kids succeed

When School's Out, Clubs Are In.

7.7 million kids and teens are alone and unsupervised after school while nearly 25 million don't have access to after-school programs. Clubs provide a safe place to play, grow and learn while empowering youth to excel in school, become good citizens and lead healthy, productive lives. Kids and teens who attend Boys & Girls Clubs perform better academically and are more likely to avoid risky behaviors and attend school consistently.

"I learn a lot at school, but sometimes, I forget it over the summer. I liked Summer Brain Gain because it helped me remember what I learned during the school year."
