Recieved $20K Grant for Academic Success Program from Bank of America

The Academic Success Program strategy is based on research demonstrating that students do much better in school when they spend their non-school hours engaged in fun academically beneficial, activities. This “fun” approach to education has been incorporated into every aspect of programming offered to members. From the arts, to the game room, to the gymnasium, to the technology centers, Academic Success creates an atmosphere of “learning is fun.”

Academic Success after-school activities and programs are coordinated and purposeful designed to reinforce the skills and knowledge learned at school while remaining focused on the priority outcome for members — to graduate from high school ready for college, trade school, or the military. Academic Success uses a variety of ways to engage members in fun, hands-on activities.

We are there for those WHO need us most. In every community, boys and girls are most often left to find their own recreation and companionship in the streets. An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision. Young people need to know that someone cares about them. Boys & Girls Clubs offer that and more. Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence.

Thank you Bank of America for your continued support!
