Our club is a non-profit, community-based organization. We are a recognized charity providing social, recreational and educational programming for children and youth. The array of services and programs offered at the Boys and Girls Club of Spryfield is formulated to respond to the needs identified from within the community’s target area. The Boys and Girls Club of Spryfield now offers a wide array of programs included in our after school program. We offer programs between the hours of 3-5 every week day, full day in-service and summer camps, beginners music program, healthy snacks, gym program, basic sewing, peer support, mentorship programs for both pre teens and teens, crafts, and help with homework along with some specialized programming from time to time which has included; basic first aid, swim to survive and leadership development. In the past two years attendance in our programs has more than tripled and continues to grow. Although the need for programs that we offer is expanding, our financial opportunities are not. We are located in a strong community which has given us much support over the years and we will depend on this support in the future if we want to continue to provide our services to the future leaders, businesses, residents and parents of our community.
