Appreciating Arts



"I came to the Club after my mother and father’s divorce.  I started Hip-Hop.  I then found Ballet, Tap and Jazz.  At the age of 12, I became a junior staff, which taught me patience, self-confidence and leadership."
-- Joseph, 13, Louis L. Valentine Club


For Joseph, Club dance programs helped him escape the disappointment and struggles he faced at home.  Many young people come to Boys & Girls Clubs to escape stressful situations that no child should have to face.  Our comprehensive array of arts programs – fine arts, performing arts, digital arts and more – help children express themselves, relieve stress and help turn pivotal points in their childhood into positive outcomes for the rest of their lives.
Please Make a Difference and help young people like Joseph have access to Art programs that allow them to escape and express.
