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.
