To Fulfill its Mission . . .
Boys & Girls Club of Walker County offers young people with what they need and want most:
- adults who respect and listen to them;
- a safe environment where they can have fun and prosper; and
- interesting, constructive activities that channel youthful energy into challenging pursuits.
All our programs incorporate the Youth Development Strategy developed and proven effective by Boys & Girls Club of America. This Strategy fosters a sense of belonging, competence, usefulness and influence among young people. Our programs help young people develop self-confident and self-esteem.
Helping youth become responsible, caring citizens and acquire skills for participating in the democratic process is the main thrust of these programs. They also develop leadership skills and provide opportunities for planning, decision-making, contributing to Club and community and celebrating our national heritage.
