Why Support Boys & Girls Clubs?
Kids love us! Last year, the Boys & Girls Clubs served over 2,000 youth ages 6-18 from Montgomery County.
Parents love us! Boys & Girls Clubs offer members:
We have our own free standing, youth dedicated facilities.
Our Clubs are open daily for after school activities and all day when schools are closed for meetings, spring break and summer. We have a swimming pool, gymnasium, athletic fields, and outside basketball courts. Read about our new gym in Germantown!.
We serve the entire community!
Adults and children from the community use our fields and facilities for company picnics, softball games, soccer, basketball, parties and other events.
We are members of the nations oldest and largest youth Movement-Boys & Girls Clubs of America. This gives us access to nationally field tested successful youth development programs such as SMART Moves, Power Hour, Project Learn, Club Tech, Fitness Challenge.
We have a diverse Board of Directors.
Our Board is made up of a diverse group of local business owners, parents, and community leaders who actively contribute financially to Boys & Girls Clubs.
We prepare youth for college success.
Boys & Girls Clubs offer leadership conferences, tutoring, college visits, SAT preparation, application reviews, and scholarship assistance.
Our education initiative works!
In 2001, 94% of participants in a reading and math enhancement program improved their standardized test scores. One hundred percent (100%) of the participants were promoted to the next grade level.
We collaborate with community organizations and businesses!
We have formed partnerships with the ARC program, Gapbusters, YMCA, Plumgar, IBM, Hughes, McDonald’s, Coca Cola, Montgomery College, Washington Wizards, Lockheed Martin, Papa John’s, Staples, Applebee’s, Subway, Walmart and countless smaller businesses such as Beltway Amoco, First Tee, Metropolitan Ballet and Martha’s Table.
