“Through this partnership, we can impact the children in our community by giving them extra tools to grow into successful adults and learn to enjoy participating in engagement activities outdoors in their neighborhoods. By bringing the Boys and Girls Club to the neighborhoods, we are expanding that service in a creative way, and bringing it to areas where physical Clubs are not currently located. We want to be responsive to the community’s need for more educational activities and engage with our young families and residents.” said Alex Tasca, Deputy Director of Neighborhood Services.
The Boys & Girls Clubs mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. The organization’s core beliefs are to provide a safe place to learn and grow. The Boys & Girls Mobile Club allows the organization to do just that.
