The Salvation Army Boys and Girls Clubs are unique places that offer programs and services to help their recipients learn to admire positive values, ethics and skills and incorporate them into their own lives. To reach today’s young people and their family in a non-threatening way, their Clubs create accepting, positive and challenging environments where people of every background, circumstance, race, creed and religion feel welcomed. The Boys and Girls Club’s goal is to inspire, enable and help young people realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.
Many of their programs are offered to encourage our youth to stay off of drugs, in school and out of gangs. By using positive role models, the organization strives to build good citizens through everyday leadership and guidance in behavior and attitude. The ultimate outcome is to show these young individuals that they matter, and that they are able to grow into active, productive citizens. The Salvation Army Boys and Girls Clubs youth also enjoy a variety of activities such as arts and crafts, tutoring, field trips, summer camp and recreation! We are asking our community to help us in supporting this amazing cause! If you have any questions or would like more information, please feel free to reach out to Tina Oliver at 318-212-1302.
