What is there to do in a Boys & Girls Club?

Here are some of our program offerings:

Keystone Clubs - Ages 14 through 18

Keystoning is the Boys & Girls Club Movement's ultimate teen program. This unique program provides leadership development for youth to participate in activities, both in and out of the Club, in three focus areas:

  1. Academic Success

  2. Career Preparation

  3. Community Service

With the guidance of an adult advisor, Keystone Clubs aim to positively impact teens, their Club, and their local communities.

UPS Road Code - Ages 13 through 18

UPS Road Code is a free national program that educates teens on safe driving techniques. The program is based in part on the driving training that UPS utilizes for its own drivers, which is rated to create the safest drivers in the world.

Fun At-Home Ideas from Your Counselors!

Group 1

Ms. Patty & Ms. Lauren & Ms. Lynn

Bored of doing the same puzzles over and over? Try a digital jigsaw puzzle!


Group 2

Ms. Trish & Mr. Bilal

Follow along with another kid and see if you can make an origami fox, or a box with a lid, or a fortune teller or a dragon. You just need a piece of paper cut into a square.


Group 3

Ms. Angela & Mr. Greg

Bored with the video games you already own? Try going on the Internet Archive and playing an old computer game like The Oregon Trail, or Sim City.


Group 4

Mr. Elijah & Ms. Chinita

If you've been stuck in your room, maybe it's time to clean and refresh it. There are lots of videos of kids cleaning their rooms or closets. Or check out some cheap & free DIY decorations.
