It’s awesome to have great neighbors like the Greenwood County Cooperative Extension!! Our partners help make STEM education a critical part of our daily Club experience for our members, and help ensure they are introduced to the possibilities that STEM holds for their future.

Boys & Girls Clubs STEM programs bridge the gap between STEM and real world scenarios focusing on hands on, project based learning for students to explore the different disciplines of STEM helping to build excellent soft skills in the “four Cs”— collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, and communication.

I am so excited to share this message from the parent of a member that gives Ms. Alexis her flowers and celebrates and highlights the power of our partnership with Ross!!

Ross is a longtime partner of Boys & Girls Clubs and the national sponsor of Power Hour, which is a program designed specifically to help kids and teens with homework. This program happens daily after school at all of our Clubs.

Dedicated youth development professionals, like Ms. Alexis and other program staff; supervise each session and help youth members complete their assignments for the day. When they finish their work, they may choose to participate in a variety of other engaging and educational activities to develop their skills even further.

Ross has worked tirelessly to establish strong connections between its stores and local Clubs to support kids in the community. Thank you Ross, Ms. Alexis and her staff, and Mathews Elementary for helping to ensure that “Great Futures Start Here”!!! And many thanks to Ms. P for all of her kind words and endorsement of the program! Our clubs are open daily from dismissal to 6:30 pm. The Ross
campaign runs through August 21, 2022.

Every $5 donation helps provide one half hour of homework help for a Club youth.

$15 helps keep a kid safe after school. Donate today and help kids Power Up!!
