We are the sum of our many experiences. Our experiences at home, at school and in our leisure time help form and shape our values and beliefs. The sum of these experiences contribute to the development of the knowledge, skills, and abilities we need to be successful in life. Unfortunately, an increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision. Young people need to know that someone cares about them and their parents need to know that their children are safe when they cannot be around. Springfield Boys & Girls Club offers that and more.
The Springfield Boys & Girls Club programs are a safe place where children can be themselves and escape the pressures they experience elsewhere. Our programs impact the lives of young people by adding productive time to the day and year for children to develop a myriad of important skills, to supplement and stimulate academic learning, to connect with caring adults, and to support their healthy development. Our club programs and services also promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence.
Now, more than ever, the children of our community and their families are in need of additional support to help kids succeed in life. Springfield Boys & Girls Club is a leading youth service provider for quality programs to meet this need in the community.
