Whether youth need help with their homework, want to learn to play the guitar or try their hand at painting, or are just looking for some healthy competition on the basketball court, they know they can count on the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kalamazoo. Our programs continue to provide safe and enriching programs for young people at 3 locations in the Kalamazoo area: Lake Street (Edison Elementary), Northeastern Elementary, and Douglass Community Center.
An average of over 200 school-age children are engaged and inspired daily in our units. The majority of youth who access our programs are living in areas with high rates of crime and poverty. Boys & Girls Clubs helps to provide a safe alternative for these children, where they can eat a meal, learn new skills, and interact with caring adults in a fun and engaging environment.
We could not continue this important work without support from the community. Your contribution helps to ensure a positive today and hope for a bright tomorrow for hundreds of Kalamazoo's children.
