Boys & Girls Club of Garfield
The mission of the Boys & Girls Club of Garfield is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.
By reaching children at an early age and providing positive activities and encouragement, our Club provides a compelling alternative to youth crime, gang membership, drugs, and other negative influences that effect our youth today. The Club provides programs and services to impact children in the areas of Academic Success, Healthy Living, Character & Citizenship.
Our Club programs promote the development of young people by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, influence and belonging. When this strategy is fully implemented, self-esteem is enhanced and an enviornment is created which helps our members acheive their full potential. Additionally, our members learn to:
· Enjoy their interests · Nurture their talents · Dissolve their prejudices · Express their personality · Develop friendships · Build self esteem · Contribute to society · Achieve personal success
