These programs are designed to ensure that all Club members graduate from high school on time, ready for a post-secondary education and a 21st-century career. We want to help our members build a strong foundation to realize their goals. Our educational programs allow young people to explore their options and reach their full potential as a leader of tomorrow.
Below is a sampling of Boys and Girls Club Educational Programming:
Power Hour – (All ages)
- Power Hour offers a structured time and place for Club staff, academic tutors, and volunteers to help members understand and complete their homework assignments on time. Members are better prepared for classes and proud of their hard work and accomplishments. This program also helps members become self-directed, resourceful, and independent learners.
STEM – (All ages)
- The Club’s STEM programs empower youth to create new solutions to real-world challenges. Club members are developing a foundation of technology skills by exploring computer science, building mobile apps, designing robots, and more! This project-based approach develops digital-aged literacy, inventive thinking, problem solving and other 21st century skills critical to success in the STEM workforce and beyond. After-school and summer learning environments provide unique opportunities to advance STEM knowledge and increase interest in STEM-related careers.
Project Learn – (All ages)
- Students do much better in school when they spend their non-school hours engaged in fun, academically beneficial activities. Through Project Learn, Club staff use all the areas and programs in the Club to create opportunities for these high-yield learning activities, including leisure reading, writing activities, discussions with knowledgeable adults, helping others, homework help, tutoring and games that develop young people’s cognitive skills. Project Learn also emphasizes parent involvement as well as collaboration between Club and school professionals.
