The Springfield Boys & Girls Club provides, in a safe environment, programs that inspire, educate, guide, enable and support all young people to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, respectful citizens and leaders.
Art programs enable youth to develop their creativity and cultural awareness through knowledge and appreciation of the visual arts, crafts, and performing arts. Currently we offer a music program as well as arts & crafts. The Club also has a chorus, which performs at community events throughout the year.
Character & Leadership
Programs such as Torch Club empower youth to support their Club and community, sustain meaningful relationships with others, develop a positive self image, participate in the democratic process and respect their own and other’s cultural identities.
Health & Life Skills
Healthy Life Skills programs help young people develop the capacity to participate in positive behaviors, which will nurture their own well-being, help them set personal goals and develop the skills needed to build successful futures. Programs that focus on healthy life skills include our Badges for Baseball Program, SMARTMoves and SMARTKids.
Sports, Fitness & Recreation
These programs help develop fitness, a positive use of leisure time, reduction of stress, appreciation for the environment and social and interpersonal skills. We offer baseball, basketball, soccer, tennis, lacrosse, swimming, and game room activities throughout the year.
Education & Career Development
These programs help youth create aspirations for the future. We provide programs including S.T.E.P. tutoring, homework help, and technology lab. We also provide our teen members with job readiness programs and junior staff opportunities. Field trips to local colleges throughout the year offer our teens the opportunity to explore their interests and plan for a successful future.
