Programs & Services

It isn’t just about fun and games at the Club. Nineteen evidence-based programs and special initiatives support our core outcomes in Academic Success, Character and Leadership and Healthy Lifestyles. 

The mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of Benton Harbor is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us the most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.

Because of our mission, we have developed a youth development strategy that instills in our members a sense of competence, belonging and usefulness. Through the programs at the Club, our youth recognize that they have influence within their peer group, family and community.

Academic Success
Each day, our members explore opportunities for education and career through the guidance of mentors and role models. Trained staff provide homework assistance, helping kids reinforce math and literacy skills while becoming self-directed learners. 
Character & Leadership
A positive self-image, creating meaningful relationships, and participating in the democratic process. These are just a few areas our members focus on as they strive to be productive, caring, responsible citizens of our community.  
Healthy Lifestyles
Being healthy doesn’t end with food and fitness; a healthy lifestyle includes practicing positive behaviors, setting and achieving goals, overcoming barriers, resisting risky situations and developing self-confidence.
