Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sioux Empirehttp://www.bgcsiouxempire.org
Our mission is to nurture, educate, and enrich children and youth for lifelong success. By offering services through our multi-branded programming at 13 sites throughout the Sioux Empire, the Boys & Girls Clubs is the area's only non-profit dedicated exclusively to serving youth from 4 weeks to age 18. Our Early Learning and Ignite programs provide high-quality, licensed child care to children ages 4 weeks-12 years old. Curriculum based learning is used to provide support to each child's growth and development. Our Club program provides drop-in after-school and summer programming for youth ages 6-18. The Club offers daily access to a broad range of programs in six core program areas: Education, The Arts, Character & Leadership, Career Development, Health & Wellness, and Sports & Recreation. We also offer programming to elementary-middle school youth after school at our Clubhouse and McGovern & Whittier Middle Schools. Giving the youth in our community the proper tools they need to become successful students and citizens is an important part of our mission.
