Used for Funds will be used for after school tutorials (power hour), Netzsmart and Club Tech programs, Spurs Drug Free Basketball league, flag football, arts & crafts, field trips, mentoring programs and summer swimming lessons for disavantaged youth.
Benefits The Boys & Girls Club provides a safe place for our members to spend time during non-school hours and the summer as an alternative to the streets or being home alone. They are provided with opportunities to build new skills that raise each child’s belief that he or she can succeed and receive recognition for personal accomplishments while developing ongoing relationships with caring adults and connections to new friends in a positive environment, reinforcing a sense of belonging, personal accountability, civility and civic responsibility. Our programs are generation-changing programs that support a commitment to learning, positive values, healthy habits and high expectations for success as an adult.
Proposal Description The Boys & Girls club staff and directors are committed to providing exciting programs that are for all the youth of Beeville. Our members range in ages 6-18. We offer educational, social, vocational, physical education, outdoor environment and character development for the youth. We also offer after school tutorials, computer classes, arts & crafts and the Spurs Drug-Free Youth Basketball league and flag football. These programs are designed to develop attitudes, relationships, and desirable skills and standards for good moral and physical development. All funds are used to promote, deliver and continue each program found within our doors.
