Today’s kids are too often faced with threats to their stability and well-being. Neighborhood and community discord is proven to lead to social, emotional, and cognitive problems, and bullying both at school and online can have a negative impact on a young person’s state of mind. When kids don’t feel safe, they can’t learn, grow, or develop resiliency that will aid them throughout their lives. The Boys & Girls Club creates a refuge, a second home, and a safe space where young people have the freedom to focus on reaching their full potential. Boys & Girls Clubs do ‘Whatever It Takes to Build Great Futures.’During COVID the Club has been serving up to 70 vulnerable youth all day for access to school as well as a positive place to still get social interaction and mentorship in a safe environment.
