Academic Success

We prepare kids and teens for high school graduation, college and careers by building the skills needed to succeed in today’s globally competitive workforce. The Club provides quiet spaces to accomplish homework and exercise mental fitness with plenty of books and games.


PowerHour sessions

This important program helps Club members ages 6-18 achieve academic success by providing homework help, tutoring and high yield learning activities. This program operates every day after school and members are encouraged to become self-directed learners. Participants’ progress is tracked and rewarded.


Project L.A.N.E. sessions

Project L.A.N.E. is a dynamic initiative demonstrating that eating right, keeping fit, and forming positive relationships adds up to an overall healthy lifestyle. There are three components of the program- mind, body and soul. Together, they build skills, behaviors, and knowledge that contribute to a sense of well-being. This program provides interactive, thought-provoking activities and the sessions build on each other to encourage youth to keep coming back.

STEM sessions

Boys & Girls Clubs of America is committed to closing the opportunity gap in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) with innovative and creative programs, activity ideas and resources for Clubs and the youth they serve. After-school and summer learning environments provide unique opportunities to advance STEM knowledge and increase interest in STEM-related careers.

DIY STEM is a hands-on, activity-based STEM curriculum which connects youth to science themes they encounter regularly. Special attention is paid to connections of theory and application and the common interactions members have with these scientific principles. DIY STEM currently includes five modules: Energy and Electricity, Engineering Design, Food Chemistry, Science of Sports: Football.
