Why Boys & Girls Clubs Are Special

 

Four key characteristics define the essence of a Boys & Girls Club. All are critical in exerting positive impact on the life of a child:

 

1.  Dedicated Youth Facility: The Boys & Girls Club is a place – an actual neighborhood-based building – designed solely for youth programs and activities.

 

2.  Open Daily: The Club is open every day, after school, when kids have free time and need positive, productive outlets.

 

3. Professional Staff: Every Club has full-time, trained youth development professionals, providing positive role models and mentors. Volunteers provide key supplementary support.

 

4. Available & Affordable to Youth (ages 6–18): Clubs reach out to kids who cannot afford, or may lack access to, other community programs
