Boys & Girls Club of Elkhart

01 Mar Boys & Girls Club of Elkhart

After a number of years of organization and planning, Elkhart’s Boys & Girls Club opened in August 2010, offering youth development programming to children at Beardsley, Bristol and Osolo Elementaries.

Because students who are not engaged in active learning during summer months lose both math and reading skills – with disadvantaged students disproportionately affected, the Club provided a summer program from June 4 through July 31, 2012 at Beardsley Elementary, thanks to ECCF grant funding. This helped the Club fulfill its mission of inspiring and enabling all young people, especially those who need the Club most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.
