 The Boys and Girls Club of Walker County

Woo-hoo!It is for boys and girls.  Being a member of a Boys & Girls Club satisfies the age-old desire of young people to have a “club” of their own.

It has an open door.  It is open when girls and boys need it.  Our Clubs are open when school is closed — after school and on school holidays.

It has full-time professional leadership supplemented by part-time workers and volunteers.

It assures that all girls and boys can afford to belong.  Membership dues are kept low, so even those with the least means will not be deterred from joining.

It is for all boys and girls.  Young people of all races, religions and ethnic cultures are welcome.

It has a varied and diversified program that recognizes and responds to the collective and individual needs of girls and boys.

It is guidance-oriented.  A Boys & Girls Club emphasizes relationships members have with each other and with the adult leaders.  It helps young people make appropriate choices in their physical, educational, vocational and spiritual lives.

It is building-centered.  Activities are conducted in the warm, friendly atmosphere of a facility especially designed for youth programs.
