My favorite thing about Boys & Girls Club is the people and sense of community it provides. The staff have always been supportive of me and are fun to be around. Boys & Girls Club is where I first felt like I was being heard. The Club mentors teach us how to be independent and think for ourselves. We also do a lot of team-building activities and community service. A big part of the Club Experience is gaining confidence in ourselves and also understanding the importance of helping others.
