It’s National Boys and Girls Club Week!
What I have always loved about the Boys and Girls Club that always strive “To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.”
I am so excited that my daughter will be starting her school career at the Boys and Girls Club VPK program right next to my sons school. Everyone there is really nice and they are involved in many great programs and events within the community. I just know my daughter is going to be ready to enter Kindergarten next year and take what she has learned at the Boys and Girls Club VPK program with her as she grows. I may even look into getting both of my kids involved on a daily basis with the Boys and Girls Club like me and my sister were when we were younger. My mom had me in the interpretive dance class they offered and my sister was in their ballet program. It was some the best times I had when I was little.
While I enjoyed attending the classes my mom who wanted to have go to a place where we go and be safe until she got off work to come and get us. While my many of my friends came from home where at least one parent was serving overseas or in a different state or country for training many kids would get dropped off at home and stay there doing their homework or whatever they were doing unsupervised. There is still such a need for Boys and Girls Clubs for working and single parent families.
