The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Fox Valley is part of a national network of affiliated Clubs. These facilities work to provide a safe, enriching environment for kids and teens to learn, grow, and have fun! The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Fox Valley maintains a mission to "inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens."
Why Boys & Girls Clubs Are Special
Four key characteristics define the essence of a Boys & Girls Club. All are critical in exerting positive impact on the life of a child:
Dedicated Youth Facility: The Boys & Girls Club is a place - an actual neighborhood-based building - designed solely for youth programs and activities.
Open Daily: The Club is open every day, after school, when kids have free time and need positive, productive outlets.
Professional Staff: Every Club has full and part-time, trained youth development professionals, providing positive role models and mentors. Volunteers provide key supplementary support.
Available/Affordable to All Youth: Membership dues are affordable. Clubs reach out to kids who may lack access to other community programs.
Unique Volunteer Opportunity
The Boys and Girls Club offers a very unique opportunity for their volunteers to work with children of all ages in various capacities. From helping with homework to playing pool in the Games Room, there is sure to be something for you to enjoy! The Club also allows the flexibility for volunteers to organize their own programs or activities, sharing their individual talents and interests with the members of the Club! The welcoming and helpful staff is always open/willing to match volunteers with their area of interest, whether it be Fine Arts, Sports/Fitness, Academics, or just socializing with the members!
