The Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County will host a Day for Kids event every year. This event is FREE to all families and kids.
Day for Kids is a national initiative that invites you to join Boys & Girls Clubs in making a difference for kids in your community. For more than a decade, adults have participated in Day for Kids events to advocate for youth and celebrate the life-changing work taking place at Boys & Girls Clubs.
WHEN – September 9th, 2017

Critical need for ClubsMany young people face serious issues in childhood that can impact their success in adulthood:
- 15.1 million children are home alone after school
- 16.1 million youth live in poverty
- 1 in 4 students fail to graduate from high school
- Nearly 4,000 juveniles are arrested daily
- One-third of kids are overweight
Our 12 school based Clubs and four neighborhood Clubs in St. Lucie County create a safe environment with resources and support to help youth create great futures. With more than 21 years’ experience, we believe that the day a child enters our doors can change their life.

We are especially thankful to our sponsors and community supporters who came to support us in making this a fun day and celebrate all kids.” said William Armstead, CEO, Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County… read more.
