For more than 75 years, we have celebrated National Boys & Girls Club Week by recognizing the invaluable service Clubs bring to communities. National Boys & Girls Club Week shines a spotlight on the 61,000 caring, trained youth development professionals who mentor kids and teens every day in 4,300 Clubs across the nation.
Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington celebrated National Boys & Girls Club Week with a fun-filled week of events focusing on our five core areas: The Arts, Health & Life Skills, Sports, Fitness and Recreation, Character & Leadership Development, Education, Technology and Career Development.
