Partner Spotlight: Boys and Girls Club of Central Arizona

"I believe the children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way. "

-Whitney Houston

Throughout Whitney Houston's hit song, Greatest Love of All, she reminds us how important children are to the success of a community and the future of humanity. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Arizona programs convey valuable life skills that are enriching, educational, entertaining, and interactive while ensuring that their members are having fun.

The Clubs focus on academic success by helping to establish productive study habits that include daily homework assistance. Additionally, they help with character development and leadership by developing a positive self-identity and values that enable their members to be responsible citizens. Under the direction and guidance of professional staff, members become community leaders of the future.

Over the past year and a half, the ongoing pandemic has hit everyone hard, but none harder than families with school-age children. Families had to choose between work and caring for their kids. The Boys & Girls Clubs stepped up to serve the community throughout the pandemic by increasing hours to offer a full-time program and dedicated schedule to support distance learning.
