Our Programs

Every year our Club provides evidence-based programming to over 1,300 youth in Buncombe County

Our programming is designed to provide a world-class Club Experience that assures success is within reach of every young person who walks through our doors. Our goal is to ensure our youth are on track to graduate from high school with a plan for the future, demonstrate good character and citizenship, and live a healthy lifestyle.

To see this vision become a reality, we have developed a research-based theory of change or a roadmap to use to ensure that our youth have a life-changing Club Experience.

This roadmap and research is demonstrated through evidenced-based programming.

All our youth participate in the Core Program areas outlined, below:

Character & Leadership

Helping youth become responsible, caring citizens and acquire skills for participating in the democratic process is the main thrust of these programs. They also develop leadership skills and provide opportunities for planning, decision-making, contributing to Club and community and celebrating our national heritage.

Education & Career

These programs help youth create aspirations for the future, providing opportunities for career exploration and educational enhancement.

Health & Life Skills

These initiatives develop young people’s capacity to engage in positive behaviors that nurture their own well-being, set personal goals and live successfully as self-sufficient adults.

The Arts

Programs in this core area enable youth to develop their creativity and cultural awareness through knowledge and appreciation of the visual arts, crafts, performing arts and creative writing.

Sports, Fitness & Recreation

These Club programs help develop fitness, a positive use of leisure time, reduction of stress, appreciation for the environment and social and interpersonal skills.

Specialized Programs

These initiatives focus on meeting the significant and specific needs identified within Boys & Girls Clubs. Their broad scope complements several or all of our core program areas.
