History

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 school 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.


Family Programming

 

Through a new Family Services Coordinator Initiative, the Clubs offer a monthly education and family fun night for all parents and guardians of the youth it serves. Among the programs offered are Family Game Nights, Family Movie Nights, Parenting Seminars, Programs on Bullying, and Financial Literacy.

The Boys & Girls Club keep my kids out of trouble and in a safe area. The staff at the Club have taught my kids good values and shown them positive role models. I am very grateful." - Ruth; Club Parent
