Building a world where everyone can thrive
At Boys & Girls Clubs, we are proud to celebrate Black History Month and recognize the past contributions of Black people, as well as the future Black leaders, innovators, artists and advocates we see every day at our Clubs. Learning about Black history is incredibly important. We believe open and transparent conversations with youth about the impact of race and systemic racism will not only create space for healing, but also help empower the next generation of leaders to create a world where everyone can thrive. Clubs provide positive role models and programs that empower young people to reach their full potential. And when young people learn about Black icons and leaders, they’re inspired to dream big.
