Boys & Girls Clubs provide a safe, supportive environment and quality after-school programs that support what kids learn during the school day to increase their overall academic success. As we prepare to start the new school year, remember that your gift of school supplies, funds, or time spent volunteering at a Club in your community will help ensure that kids and teens have the necessary resources to achieve great futures.
