Teen Program: The Club

    


It's More Than A Club.

WHO WE ARE

The CLUB is a space within Boys & Girls Clubs created especially for teens, apart from the younger kids. It is a safe place, where you can be yourself without feeling the pressure of being judged. At The CLUByou’ll have access to resources and experiences that expose you to a world of opportunities. Plus, The CLUB is a comfortable place to hang out with friends, connect with caring mentors, and participate in fun activities like sports, arts and volunteerism.

WHAT WE DO

Each night the Club runs a variety of programs designed to engage teens in activities, projects, and recreation that reflects their interests. The CLUB offers gym time with organized activities as well as free play, a games room with pool, foosball, air hockey and ping pong, arts & crafts room, video gaming station and a technology lab. We provide opportunities for new, fun activities, career and college prep, a cooking program, special events (Teen Night, Girls Night Out, guest speakers, etc.), and connection with positive role models. Free nightly snacks or dinners are also provided. Vending machines are available for snack and beverage purchases as well.
