The six school-based sites are open from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. each day after school. School break locations may vary, but are usually hosted at several of Glades area school-based club sites each year.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County works to help youth of all backgrounds develop the qualities needed to become responsible citizens and leaders. The Club offers daily access to a broad range of programs in six core program areas: character and leadership development; education and career development; health and life skills; the arts; sports and fitness; and technology.
In September 1994, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County proposed an outreach and partnership program to all Glades’ area schools.
By December, an agreement was reached for the Club to assume the operation of after sc::hool programs in three elementary schools in Belle Glade.
Over the years, the Glades’ area Boys & Girls Club grew to encompass six school-based sites and one stand-alone facility, serving more than 1,200 youth through programs and outreach. A majority of the clubs offer both a before-school care and an after-school care program.
Praise the Lord for the Glades Boys & Girls Clubs. Whoever thought of adding the family program to the Club is a genius. We are having so much fun. We receive useful information and links to community resources like summer camp scholarship, clothing vouchers and food." Arnetha; Club parent
