Byerly Foundation visits Hartsville Club
The Byerly Foundation toured the Hartsville Boys & Girls Club last week.
“This isn't your average after school program,” says Brianna Douglas, executive director of The Byerly Foundation. “We really enjoyed spending time with students and staff and learning more about the opportunities and challenges in serving our youth.”
The Club serves more than 100 students every day and offers programs in STEM, literacy, health, fitness, and so much more. It provides a safe space for children ages 6-18 with positive, caring adults 252 days a year.
Based on our most recent teacher surveys, 86% of students who needed to improve their academic performance did; 80% of students who needed to improve their behavior did; 86% of students who needed to do better completing their homework to the teacher’s satisfaction did; 80% of students needing to come to school more motivated to learn did; and 74% of those who needed to volunteer in the classroom for extra credit or to show more responsibility did.
94% of students say they enjoy learning new things.
98% of students would stand up for what is right.
93% of students say they try to help others.
How do our Club kids see these results?
As the 2023 Hartsville Youth of Year Antonio Dix expressed, “They always have my back.”
At the Hartsville Club, staff use the Ron Clark House System, tutoring with certified teachers, Caring adults and volunteers, and partnerships with the Governor’s School for Science and Math as well as specific Boys & Girls Club programs, SMART Girls, Power Hour Homework Help, STEM Programs, Positive Club Climate, Passport to Manhood, and Triple Play Nutrition & Fitness Education.
The Hartsville Club is also blessed to have Dianne Montgomery as Club Director. She has more than 16 years of Boys & Girls Club experience overseeing club programs, has managed numerous state and federal grants, and serves as a life coach for both adults and youth.
