BGCSW actively seeks to enrich the lives of our Club members by ensuring greater access to quality programs. Members explore a variety of interests and needs based programs in five core areas:
- Character and Leadership Development
- Education and Career Development
- Health and Life Skills
- The Arts
- Sports, Fitness and Recreation
On a typical day, Club members have an opportunity to participate in programs in the Games Room, Arts Center, Learning Center, Technology Lab, Instructional Kitchen, Library, or Gymnasium, all designed to interest, educate, and inspire our Club members. Three fifty-minute rotations in each area are offered and members are free to pick their own rotations. Club staff in each specialty area plan a ten-week curriculum. In a typical week, up to 50 structured activities are offered.
The tutoring program includes opportunities for our members to set goals, work one-on-one with a volunteer tutor, and build not only academic skills, but also confidence in their education.
The mentoring program matches a Club member with a volunteer mentor, with the hope of building a positive relationship with an encouraging adult, and enhancing character development. Club members chosen for the mentoring program are those who parents or staff feel would benefit from the individual attention of a caring community member.
