Boys and Girls Clubs
The Positive Place for Kids
In communities through out the Carolinas, boys and girls are left to find their own recreation and companionship in the streets. An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision. Young people need to know that someone cares about them.
The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs and Community Centers offer that and more. Our programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence.
Boys & Girls Clubs are a safe place to learn and grow - all while having fun. It is truly The Positive Place For Kids.
