The Boys & Girls Clubs of Springfield provide programs that guide and direct youth from all backgrounds, particularly those from at-risk environments. Through social, physical, and educational development activities, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Springfield teach youth the values of life, strengthen their self-esteem, and make them better citizens of our community.
The Club offers daily access to a broad range of programs in five core program areas: The Arts, Character and Leadership Development, Education and Career Development, Health and Life Skills and Sports, Fitness and Recreation. Giving the youth of the community the proper tools they need to become successful students and citizens is an important part of our mission.
Big Changes in the Works!
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Springfield, in partnership with Springfield Public Schools, intend to submit an application to the State Department of Education for a 21st CCLC grant.
