Boys & Girls Clubs
Since 1932, Caring People Alliance has operated Boys & Girls Clubs in Philadelphia, supporting youth during Out of School Time.
Boys & Girls Clubs are in the forefront of youth development, working with young people from disadvantaged economic, social and family circumstances. Our Boys & Girls Clubs enrich the lives of young people and offer a safe haven in which they can learn and grow. We are dedicated to ensuring that our community's disadvantaged youth have greater access to quality programs and services that will enhance their lives and shape their futures.
In a world that has never seemed more threatening and devoid of promise for a disproportionate number of America's children, our organization provides youth, ages 6 to 18, with a tangible measure of hope. The Club offers them what they need and want most:
• adults who respect and listen to them;
• a safe environment where they can have fun and be themselves; and
• interesting, constructive activities that channel youthful energy into challenging pursuits.
Our Boys & Girls Clubs are located in North, South, and West Philadelphia and runs on our dedicated professional staff supplemented by volunteers. Our Clubs offer daily access to a broad range of programs that promote the health, social, educational, vocational, character and leadership development of girls and boys served. Club programs foster a sense of belonging, competence, usefulness and influence that builds self-confidence and self-esteem.
