About Boys & Girls Club
Boys & Girls Clubs of South Africa operates facility based after-school programs for school-aged young people. The Club offers a variety of activities in 5 different program areas designed to meet the interests and needs of members.
A Boys & Girls Club is more than just a place for kids to play and learn. It’s a safe haven that provides activities and experiences that enrich the lives of young people creating opportunities and expectations that teach valuable life skills to rely on throughout life.
The Club involves young boys and girls in programs and activities that build self-esteem and self-worth. They learn the values of responsibility and respect in a supportive environment free of pressure and stress. Clubs empower children to make wise and educated life choices. In this age of teen alcohol use, drugs, and violence, we work to help create model citizens and productive members of society.
BGCSA has three priority outcome areas for impact:
- Academic Success
- Healthy Lifestyles
- Good Character & Citizenship
BGCSA has a variety of programs such as Power Hour (homework help), Smart Girls and Passport to Manhood, which are focused on life skills, and BGCSA Champion, which focuses on good character and behavior within our Club Members.
