Good Character and Citizenship Begins in the Clubs

Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City begins working with youth as young as five years of age, teaching responsibility of self, of others and of their community. When young people step through the doors of a Club, they are stepping into a community of their peers who are learning the key principles of good character and citizenship. These principles include: caring for one another, listening, supporting, and working side by side to make a change. The foundation for good character and citizenship is established in Club programs such as SMART Girls, RBI (Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities), Passport to Manhood, Keystone Club and Torch Club.

Through a comprehensive, intentional and outcome-driven approach to programming, we ensure that if children participate in the activities and programs available to them, they are more likely to become productive, responsible citizens making a positive impact in their community.

Good character and citizenship are key to creating Great Futures for our youth. Click here to check out a video featuring our president, Dave Smith, and our great friend and Allstate partner, Tim Waltrip, discussing good character and citizenship at the Clubs.
