I wrote this review while participating in a campaign for Mom Central Consulting on behalf of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. I received a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
I’ve wrote about the Boys & Girls Club in the past because I love what they do! For quite some time now the Boys & Girls Club have been a safe alternative for kids who don’t have enough structured extracurricular activities. Instead of the kids running into mischief on the streets or spending time unsupervised at home the Boys & Girls club have given kids a safe place to learn, grow, and belong. This week is National Boys & Girls Club Week!
This year, the National Boys & Girls Club Week is being celebrated by encouraging everyone to “Open the door. Take the tour.” They want everyone to come and see what the Club is about and if it’s right for them. Local communities will be encouraged to visit their local Club and see what happens behind the blue doors. If you don’t want to leave your house right now you can take a virtual Club tour.
I’ve taken the virtual tour and loved what I saw. I’m hoping to soon visit our local Boys & Girls Club to take part in the many activities they have planned. Anything that increases our activity is a wonderful thing. Plus, I’ve heard that they have a great swimming program!
If you’re interested in visiting your local Boys & Girls Club, they have a whole lay out of themed events scheduled to show you all of the things they do for children.
The schedule for this year’s celebration includes the following:
• Monday, April 8 – Open the door to education.
• Tuesday, April 9 – Open the door to technology.
• Wednesday, April 10 – Open the door to character and citizenship.
• Thursday, April 11 – Open the door to healthy lifestyles.
• Friday, April 12 – Open the door. Take the tour.
