In addition to school-age child care programs, the five Core Program Areas provide an overall framework for programming in our Boys & Girls Club. Our Club provides a diverse program in hopes of attracting and retaining boys and girls with a wide variety of interests and needs. This is accomplished partly by offering programs in all five Core Program Areas, which are: character and leadership development, education and career development, health and life skills; the arts; and sports, fitness, and recreation.
