Direct beneficiaries per year: 10,000 members annually
Geographic areas served: Broward County
Programs: In line with its mission, Boys & Girls Clubs are sited in areas that provide access to low income and under-served populations. The target population for this program is socio-economic "at-risk" youth between the ages of 7-17 who would otherwise be unsupervised and left to their own resources during the day. In addition, the program targets children of families that require childcare before and after the usual hours of operation of most other programs to accommodate working parents/caregivers. This program is a departure for the Boys & Girls Clubs from its usual drop in policy by which participants come and go whenever they please and participate in programs of their choice. Programs include homework assistance, academic tutoring,arts and crafts, team and individual sports, group clubs' computer instruction and leadership building.
