Our Programs

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.
Boys & Girls Club of Walker County offers Proven Programs in Five Key Areas

The Arts
 
 Encourage youth to develop their creativity and cultural awareness through knowledge and appreciation of the visual arts, crafts, performing arts and creative writing.
Education & Career

Enable youth to become proficient in basic educational disciplines, set goals, explore careers, prepare for employment and embrace technology to achieve success in a career. Out-of-school time – after school and summer – is the most critical and overlooked opportunity to help youth reach their full potential and have a great future. At Boys & Girls Club, we offer academic programs and hands-on learning opportunities that complement and reinforce what kids learn in school. Our programs let kids and teens explore interests at their own pace and equip them with skills they’ll need to advance from kindergarten to 12th grade, and graduate from high school on time, ready to succeed in college, the military or a career. 
Health & Lifeskills

Boys & Girls Club encourages our youth to be healthy for a great future! We offer programs and initiatives to develop young people's capacity to engage in positive behaviors that nurture their own well-being, set personal goals and live successfully as self-sufficient adults.
Character & Leadership

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.
Sports, Fitness & Recreation

Help develop physical fitness, reduce stress and promote a positive use of leisure time, appreciation for the environment and interpersonal skills.
