What are Boys & Girls Clubs?
We are a community-based, non-profit organization that provides young people with a fun, safe and constructive environment. Clubs offer year round programs and services to build character and strengthen life skills. We reach out to children, especially those in need, giving them support, guidance and hope for the future.New Paragraph
To inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
The purpose of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Wayne County is to promote the social, educational, health, leadership, and character development of boys and girls during critical periods of their growth. Our youth come to the Boys & Girls Clubs to receive tutoring/homework help, computer training, sports education, to make friends and for mentoring. Our youth gain confidence by developing a sense of usefulness and belonging.
Our goal is to provide every child with the essential tools needed for a successful and bright future. Since 1947, the vision of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Wayne County has grown and changed with the needs of our children. As the needs of our children and their families continue to change, so will the dynamics of our programs and services. Every day, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Wayne County strives to improve each member's life by inspiring self-esteem, courage, and positive values throughout all our programs.
