The Boys and Girls Club on Broadway Avenue in Cleveland is trying to help keep kids on the right track, something the organization says is just as much about mentorship as it is about having fun activities to keep them entertained.
“They can participate in music and band, singing and dance we offer activities in the gym where they can learn flag football, volleyball,” said Program Operations Director Renata Brown.
There’s no shortage of things to do at the Boys and Girls Club—but of course it all has to happen after homework is done.
“They get hugs, they get food, pretty much everything that a kid needs and wants is here,” Brown said.
Brown said mentorship is key to keeping young people out of trouble
“Just building the relationships with our kids so that they come back, so that we can watch them grow, help them grow keep them safe and try to get them exposed to as many opportunities as possible.”
