Partner Spotlight: Boys & Girls Club of Greater St. Louis
Through its programs and services, the Boys and Girls Club of Greater St. Louis (BGCSTL) inspires and empowers youth to strive for success.
By connecting young people to caring adults who teach them about character and leadership development; education and career development; health and life skills; the arts; and sports, fitness, and recreation, BGCSTL ensures that young people have the knowledge and skills they need to be productive and responsible members of the community.
Additionally, BGCSTL provides a safe space where young people can be themselves and build relationships with adults and their peers.
“In youth development, in order for a child to get the appropriate ingredients that they need to be successful, they need a safe place to come, they need a place where they have a sense of belonging, a place where they know people are concerned about their welfare, and [BGCSTL] does that for them,” says Dr. Flint Fowler, President of Boys and Girls Club of St. Louis.
