Recap- BGCA Week 2024

Recap of National Boys & Girls Club Week

June 24-28, 2024

Celebrated since 1941, National Boys & Girls Club Week recognizes the invaluable service Clubs bring to communities, paving the road for great futures that are within reach of every young person who enters our doors. We joined in on the fun by celebrating National Boys & Girls Club Week by observing and participating in daily themed activities. This year’s theme was centered around celebrating how young people level up with Boys & Girls Clubs every day through our activities, programs, and dedicated staff. Nationally, as one of the leading youth development organizations with over 160 years of experience, we were excited to showcase the ways in which we help young people grow and succeed. Just as in video games, the journey to success is not always easy, but with the right support, guidance, and determination, every young person can level up and reach their full potential.
