Boys & Girls Club of Lewistown
The mission of the Club is: Empowering Youth, Strengthening Futures. The Club does that through providing a safe, fun and positive after school and summer space for youth K to Teens. The schedule includes daily activities around art, fitness, life skills and STEM - as well as special activities such as archery, field trips to the wind farm, horse camp, farm to table education and field trips, swimming pool, bowling and more! We are working to achieve the outcome that all BG Club youth become healthy, productive and responsible citizens.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED
For youth: Enrollment can happen year round. K-6 activities happen on a daily basis (M-F) and Teens programs are scheduled consistently each week.
For adults: The Club is consistently in need of volunteers to lead learning team activities, assist in field trips, take action with admin items, or take part in fundraising activities. In addition, the Club has a Board of Directors which meets monthly.
For businesses and generous individuals: The Club is a local way for you to make a gift to impact youth! All monies stay local and you help the Club serve the over 15,000 visits from youth each year.
