Boys & Girls Club of Glacier Country
- Association/Not for profit
Boys & Girls Clubs of Glacier Country is a charter of Boys & Girls Clubs of America, serving the Flathead Valley. We provide after school and summer programming and services for youth in grades K-8.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Glacier Country works to save and change the lives of children and teens, especially those who need us most, by providing a safe, positive, and engaging environment and programs that prepare and inspire them to achieve Great Futures.
The hours after school between 3:00 PM -6:00 PM is the most critical time of day for youth and many youth in our community go unsupervised during these hours, which can lead to unsafe situations and risky behavior.
The benefits of participating in an after-school program can improve students’ academic performance, improve classroom behavior, school attendance, academic aspirations and reduce the likelihood of a student dropping out of school.
Students who participate in after-school programs have been associated with reduced drug use, criminal behavior, and positive health outcomes.
At the Boys & Girls Club of Glacier Country we believe that the time we spend investing in our youth is never wasted and transforms into a brighter future.
