Club Program Priority Outcome Areas
Boys & Girls Club of the Plateau incorporates BGCA's Project Learn program into daily activities at the Club. These programs aim to assist cognitive skill development and enrich the learning experience. Critical thinking games, STEAM and literacy program partnerships with our local library, environmental education programs, and health education are just a few of many learning opportunities we provide.
Power Hour, a component of BGCP's Academic Success programming, is designated time for homework and tutoring. During Power Hour, our members have access to technology, reference materials, volunteer tutors, and many other resources to support an environment that encourages members to always do their best work.
Healthy & Active Lifestyles
At Boys & Girls Club of the Plateau, we aim to provide active sport and fitness programming for all members!
Triple Play is BGCA’s first comprehensive health and wellness program. It was developed in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The program strives to improve the overall health of Club members ages 6-18 by increasing their daily physical activity, teaching them good nutrition and helping them develop healthy relationships.
The SMART Moves program is a prevention and education program that addresses making healthy lifestyle choices. Young people today are faced with so many messages in the media and from their peers and the world around them that encourage unhealthy behaviors. This program is designed to educate and encourage members on making healthy lifestyle choices by involving them in relevant discussions and activities.
Character & Citizenship
Youth of the Month is a merit-based recognition program designated to celebrate members who demonstrate outstanding character and citizenship at the Club. Club staff and members are involved in nominating and voting to determine the award winner; many members are nominated by their peers for acts of kindness, helpfulness, and selflessness.
Our members often participate in service learning opportunities; older members have assisted Friends of Panthertown on a trail clean-up day and planted wildflowers with Highlands-Cashiers Land Trust in McKinney Meadow. Teens often assist as homework assistants in Power Hour for younger members. All members respect Club property and actively participate in cleaning and beautifying the grounds.
