The Boys & Girls Club of America understands that “In every community, 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. 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. Boys & Girls Clubs are a safe place to learn and grow, all while having fun. They are truly The Positive Place For Kids.”
The Boys & Girls Clubs of America are cool for many reasons. They are open daily, even on weekends. The staff members are fully trained professionals and volunteers are welcome. But the best part of Boys & Girls Club is that it is very affordable. Dues can be $5 – $10 per year. Yes, you read it right, per year.
