EDUCATION & CAREER

Power Hour
Providing homework assistance and tutorial services for school age children. Points are earned for homework completed.  Members are able to use the points to purchase items from the Reward Store (McMullan Unit).

 Our aim is to ensure that all Club members graduate from high school on time, ready for a post-secondary education and a 21st-century career.

Project Learn

Project Learn combines Power Hour with hi-yield learning activities that will increase members’ motivation to learn, improve their grades, and provide them with a variety of educational opportunities. 
Club Tech/My Future
 
Offers access to technology, age-appropriate internet safety training, resources, and skills to perform better in school and the workplace.  Club Tech also includes RoboTech - a robotics program.

Be Great Graduate


This program uses the early warning signals -- attendance, behavior and course failure -- to identify youth at risk of dropping out of school.  This also includes our CareerLaunch and Goals for Graduation programs.

Money Matters

Money Matters promotes financial responsibility and independence among Club members ages 13 to 18. Participants learn how to manage a checking account, create a budget, save and invest, start small businesses and pay for college.

Junior Staff


This program 

assists Club members ages 13 to 18 in exploring a career in youth or human services, particularly Boys & Girls Club work. Young people prepare for future roles as human services professionals by participating in career development activities, discovering the importance of community service, building customer service skills and completing a Club apprenticeship. Clubs that implement this program make an investment in the development of Club members’ interpersonal skills, work ethic and sense of community responsibility.
