Celebrating National Boys & Girls Clubs Week | June 21-25, 2021

Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Louisiana invite you to show your support of Clubs and its impact on the communities we serve this National Boys & Girls Club Week - June 21-25, 2021. This special celebration offers you the opportunity to experience the life changing programs Boys & Girls Clubs offers to children and teens in Baton Rouge, Covington, Gretna, New Orleans and Slidell.

As part of the week, some 4,700 Boys & Girls Clubs across America and on U.S. military installations worldwide will host weeklong celebrations featuring the many ways Clubs are doing whatever it takes to help youth stay on track as the nation begins to recover from the COVID-19 crisis. Many of the week’s celebrations will focus on our ability to provide safe places, academic support, workforce readiness, and health and wellness programs.
