Boys & Girls Clubs of Indianapolis, Inc.
July 29, 2011

As a volunteer of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Indianapolis I get to work with these kids on conflict resolution and how to act when things get heated between another people. It is amazing the changes you see in kids who attend these classes on a regular basis vs. the kids who don’t attend on a regular basis. The kids that attend on a regular basis make huge strides in their overall social skills and behavior. They seem to have a general understanding of what is happening, when the argument is escalating and when their words no longer are working. At this point the next step is very critical, will kids to turn to violence or will they make smarter decisions with non-confrontational results. It is the amazing the type of results that we see with these kids and the impact in their life.
