• To inspire and enable all young people, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.
A Boys & Girls Club provides:
• A safe place to learn and grow
• Ongoing relationships with caring, adult professionals
• Life-enhancing programs and character development experiences
• Hope and opportunity
Our youth development strategy:
? A sense of belonging – a setting where they know they fit and are accepted.
? A sense of competence – the feeling that there is something they can do well.
? A sense of usefulness – opportunities to do something of value for others, to assume real responsibility and do real work.
? A sense of influence – a chance to be heard, to lead, to take part in decision making and feel that they have control over their own destiny.
