SPECIALIZED PROGRAMS

These initiatives focus on meeting the significant and specific needs identified within Boys & Girls Clubs. Their broad scope complements several or all of our core program areas.

*Please note: We have multiple program offerings available through Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Programs described below consist of the menu of offerings we may provide. Although we run several of these programs and others throughout the year, the list below does not necessarily reflect the programs that are currently being ran.

Myclubmylife.com is Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s website to reach and inspire teens. The site provides an engaging digital platform that connects teens to life-changing programs, valuable resources and unique opportunities. Website content is always appropriate for teens, and is designed to help educate teens about career and education opportunities, healthy living, finances and much more in fun, interactive ways. Contests, recognition opportunities and social media integration provide other means to meaningfully engage teens.

The program builds the capacity of local Clubs to help their members appreciate themselves as unique and special individuals, understand diversity in society, recognize bias and unfairness and take personal leadership in confronting bias.
