Benefits The Boys & Girls Club provides a safe, positive, drug free environment for the youth of Bee County during the times they are not in school or on summer break. The youth are much more likely to develop positive attitudes and become productive members of society by spending their leisure time at the Boys & Girls Club.
Proposal Description The Boys & Girls Club is a private youth organization dedicated to providing Educational, Health and Physical Education, Cultural Enrichment, Personal Adjustment, Social Recreation, Outdoor and Environmental Education. Our main core service programs provide opportunities for the members to spend their free time in a wholesome atmosphere, using their minds, hands and bodies in a constructive, off the street manner.

The Boys & Girls Club mission is to provide guidance to the youth ages 6 through 18 through development of their leadership, citizenship, and personal adjustment skills. Our club serves “at risk” youth with positive youth development opportunities. Our Youth Development programs are readily available during the times of day and year that our members are not in school. Our after school program provides time for members to complete homework assignments, (Power Hour), participate in computer literacy activities, play in our game room area, be a part of our arts and crafts program, and participate in our athletic programs. Our summer program includes many of the activities provided after school as well as educational field trips, camping trips, school programs, art lessons, and the usual learning center, game room and gym activities. Grant money specifically designated for the running of all these programs.
