Every program, practice, resource, and opportunity at Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada is aimed at one goal: helping youth achieve Great Futures.
Designed to complement and reinforce what youth learn during the school day, Clubs create experiences that invite kids to fall in love with learning. Rooted in social-emotional youth development practices, our Academic Success programs enable youth to be effective, engaged, adaptive learners who are on track to graduate with a plan for their future.
Character & Leadership
Our leadership and service programs help youth become responsible, caring citizens who acquire skills to participate in the democratic process. Program participants also develop leadership skills and gain opportunities for planning, decision-making, and contributing to their Club and community while celebrating our national heritage.
Creative Arts Programs are designed to help young people develop cultural awareness, spark creativity, and amplify their voices through artistic expression. Through Digital, Visual, Performing and Applied Arts experiences, kids of all ages can access imagination, build self-confidence, and discover new ways to express themselves.
Health and wellness programs develop young people’s capacity to engage in positive behaviors, nurture their well-being, set personal goals, and grow into self-sufficient adults. Designed to help youth develop the mind, body and soul, kids and teens learn skills to manage stress, eat right, keep physically fit, and develop healthy relationships.
Sports & Recreation
Sports and Recreation programs are designed to help all youth become physically literate – having the competence, confidence and intrinsic motivation to be physically active every day. These programs help develop physical fitness, reduce stress and promote a positive use of leisure time, as well as appreciation for the environment and interpersonal skills.
Our community has an urgent need for mental health services. As we work to recover from the long-term effects of COVID, this is especially true for youth. Poor mental health can affect all areas of life well into adulthood.
