I would see commercials for the Boys Club as a kid and always wondered what they were all about. Since we didn’t have one in my hometown – no one knew and as an adult I never crossed paths with the club that beats the streets. So to this day the boys club remains this mysterious place where boys did cool stuff and met celebrities. If only I had access to a tool that allowed me to instantly access information so I could figure out what they are all about.
Since I cannot think of anyway to find out I wrote the Boys Club and got this response six weeks later:
Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) is a national organization whose mission is to “enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.” It offers many programs that provide kids with a fun and educational experience, as well as a safe after-school environment. Headquarters are located in Atlanta, with regional offices in Chicago, Dallas, New York City and Los Angeles.
