The Boys & Girls Club of Western Benton County is excited to launch the Great Futures Campaign to mobilize the community in support of kids and empower our youth to achieve
success. We are redefining the opportunity equation for young people by
elevating the critical role out-of-school time plays in a child’s chance for a
great future. When our community prepares to go back to school
this fall, we want to ensure that out-of-school time is part of the
environment – after school and summer – plays a critical role in transforming
kids’ lives. Our nation’s state of poor academic
performance, obesity, drug use, and youth-related violence are cause for
alarm and national action. Every day,
15 million kids leave school with no place to go, putting them at
risk of being unsupervised, unguided and unsafe. What happens during the
hours between school and home can have a dramatic impact on a child’s future. By providing access to positive and productive programs as well as caring adult mentors
during out-of-school time, we can help reverse the most negative trends
facing our youth.
a leading advocate for youth, we are committed to ensuring that every child has
access to a safe place after school and during the summer where they can build
the knowledge, skills and behaviors to put them on the right path. Through the Campaign, we want to reach more kids in need
and grow participation in our life-changing, outcome-driven, out-of-school time
programs to transform the future for our kids, community and country.
