What you have to offer
In accordance with the core mission statement of Boys and Girls Club of America, the Boys and Girls Club of Webster-Dudley is committed to "enabling all young people, especially those who need it most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens" and a donation to our club could help us achieve just that. Through programming, the addition of caring and influential staff, and new equipment and activities, donations to our club go a long way and are a great way to give back to the youth of your community.
It Just Takes One
Each child who walks through our doors has one unique future. One may come from a loving, single parent family, or speak little English, or may not have a home. At the Boys & Girls Club it is our job to give each child a sense of hope and opportunity. We work to bring out what’s inside a child and we carry out our mission with care. We take it one child at a time.
Professional staff members provide informal guidance that helps young people develop character. We have the potential to impact the life of each and every young person we serve. Your generosity allows the Club to have a profound impact on a child’s life by offering fun and appealing activities that show we care.
Each day, the staff at the Boys & Girls Club of Webster-Dudley are challenged with unique situations. Taking one day, with one program, using one hour to help turn the life of a child in the right direction. Encouraging a child to be engaged and eager to learn more. To create a relationship that will provide positive influence for a lifetime.
Our staff is dedicated to teaching the importance of character in daily life. They are caring adults who strive to direct children to choose right from wrong. They instill a sense of belonging and promote feelings of competence, as well as mentor children to make positive choices.
According to the U.S. Department of Education and Justice, students who attend quality, after school programs demonstrate better academic performance, more positive behavior and better school attendance, than those who do not.
