Kids and teens need Clubs.
- Juvenile violent crime escalates between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. on school days
- 1 out of 6 students fails to graduate from high school on time
- 1 out of 5 young people lives in poverty
- 43 million kids lack access to summer learning programs, putting them at a significant disadvantage at the start of each school year.
Boys & Girls Clubs are making a difference.
Boys & Girls Clubs provide young people with a safe place to go after school and during the summer as well as a positive outlet for their energy. Out-of-school hours serve as the essential link between school and home, offering the greatest opportunity to influence the future of our kids, our communities and our country. Boys & Girls Clubs of America seeks to ensure that all kids, especially those who need us most, have a positive and enriching experience when the school bell rings, putting them on the path to success.
