2. Education and Career Development activities to enable young people to become proficient in basic education disciplines, set goals, explore career, prepare for employment and embrace technology to achieve success in a career.

3. Arts & Cultural Enrichment activities to enable young people to develop their creativity and cultural awareness through knowledge and appreciation for the visual arts and creative writing.

4. Sports, Fitness and Recreation activities to develop fitness, positive use of leisure time skills for stress management, appreciation for the environment and social skills.

Grateful to Lowe's Heroes!

The youth and staff at the Carl D. Thomas Memorial Boys & Girls Club are grateful to these amazing Lowes Heroes from the Lowe's Home Improvement and the Lowe's Home Improvement store for all their hard work today! We can't wait to see the after pictures! 

In every community, many boys and girls are 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, especially in the after school hours between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. Young people need postive alternatives.
 
At the Boys & Girls Club, young people explore and develop their talents.  Boys and girls aged 6-18, who might otherwise be on the streets, are engaged in life-enhancing programs that are proven to help them grow into responsible, productive adults.
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. The average member at B&GCCG spends 10 hours a week in life-enhancing program.
