At five of our Corps Community Centers, children are given a safe environment in which to explore and maximize their potential after school. In the summertime, parents are also offered the opportunity to have their children participate in our summer day camp program.

Youth of the Year Scholarship Program

Youth of the Year is a Boys & Girls Clubs scholarship competition that provides year-round youth development for our Club members ages 12 to 18. Winners earn scholarships for continued education upon graduating from high school.
