Review for Boys & Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities, Saint Paul, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I would give Boys & Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities 10 stars if I could! As a volunteer and member of the BGCTC Associate Board I've witnessed firsthand the Clubs' impact on the lives our youth in the Twin Cities. The programming the Clubs offer provides the Club kids with life skills, education, and character traits that I wish our school systems would teach every kid as they mature. Not to mention the simple fact that the Clubs provide a safe place for our youth to go to after school and during the summer months. There are things that these kids do that most adults in their 30s and 40s would not do or would be scared to do (public speaking in front of 500 people for instance!), all because BGCTC motivates these kids to seek their full potential and strive for what they believe in. Also, because the Club staff tells the Club kids that they can achieve it if they put in the effort and make the right choices. There is no doubt that the Clubs change lives - they help our youth graduate from high school, get good paying jobs, go to college, and realize that they accomplish whatever they set their minds to. OUTSTANDING WORK BEING DONE HERE!
