The Salvation Army Boys and Girls Clubs

The programs at the Boys and Girls Club enrich the lives of young people. The club serves children from economically challenged and culturally disadvantaged families improving their health, welfare, and quality of life. It offers them an opportunity to interact with other youth in a structured and supervised environment. Many of the children attending the club have few alternatives for their free time when they are not in school. Each of the three Salvation Army Boys and Girls Clubs work collectively with families, schools, and outside agencies to provide Baltimore Area at-risk youth, ages 6 to 18, provide youth with fun educational, recreational, cultural, and technological experiences - helping them to build new friendships, learn new skills, and explore their own talents and strengths. The Clubs' various programs and activities are designed to prepare at-risk youth for a successful transition into adulthood. On-site libraries and computer labs help foster academic achievement, while on-going group activities such as sports teams, job training, healthcare and leadership workshops help to promote teamwork, healthy lifestyle choices, and community involvement.

Power Hour, a daily requirement for all youth attending the clubs, offers daily tutoring and homework help;
