Boys & Girls Club Week 2018
Since 1941, the Boys & Girls Club Movement has celebrated National Boys & Girls Club Week by recognizing the invaluable service Clubs bring to communities and sharing how great futures start at Boys & Girls Clubs.  National Boys & Girls Club Week promotes the fact that while Clubs operate on a local community level, they are also part of a growing national Movement. We celebrate National Boys & Girls Club Week by showing how our Clubs help kids become anything they want to become.
