Great futures really do start here. It’s more than a slogan… it’s what we do every day.
We start great futures. Ask Denzel Washington. Ask Jennifer Lopez or Yankees pitcher C.C. Sabathia.
They will tell you Boys & Girls Clubs saved their lives. Bold, but true! And right here in Manatee County, ask Sheriff Brad Steube, Representative Jim Boyd, or Businessman Hugh Miller.
A recent press release from Boys & Girls Clubs of America stated that “each summer, an estimated 43 million children in the U.S. miss out on expanded learning opportunities that could prevent them from falling behind before the next school year begins. During summer, most youth lose about two months’ worth of math skills. Low-income youth also lose more than two months’ worth of reading skills, while their middle-class peers make slight gains.”
You can help Boys & Girls Clubs of Manatee County provide our communities children with the opportunity to keep their learning skills sharp while having a GREAT summer. Find out how here… Help Give Manatee Kids with a Great Summer.
