Career and Academic - Boys & Girls Club

Career and Academic Success

Power Hour

This resource program involves kids actively in homework and tutoring sessions at the Club. Youth ages 6 through 18 benefit from activities and strategies designed to help them become self-directed learners that see homework and school as a challenge to be overcome rather than an impossible obstacle.

D.I.Y. STEM

Do It Yourself (DIY) STEM is an activity-based program for 9-12 year olds to help them make connections between scientific principles and real-world applications. This program uses common items that Clubs may have on hand, or can procure easily to introduce youth to STEM concepts. 

Visual Arts

Workshops and individual instruction in drawing, painting, developing short stories, pottery/ceramics, crochet and sewing basics.  

Junior Staff

Junior Staff is a small-group program that is both practical and user friendly. It assists Club members ages 13 to 18 in exploring a career in youth or human services, particularly Boys & Girls Club work.

BGCF Career Fair

Presentations by local government agencies, private businesses, and non-profits at the Clubhouse.

LFCC Workforce Solutions Trades Camp

Club kids participate on scholarship waiver with LFCC. 

Project Learn

Youth of all ages engage in academic enrichment programs through Project Learn during the time they spend at the Club. The goal is to keep kids interested and engaged with school so they see it through to graduation.
