Programs

Club programs

While members are at our Clubs, they take part in various evidence-based programs designed around five core areas: academic success, character and leadership, healthy lifestyles, the arts, and sports & recreation. These programs ensure a fun, positive, and productive Club experience.

Academic success

Power Hour
Members spend an time daily focused on academics. Many will use this time to work on homework, receive tutoring, or work on other learning-based projects.
Hands on Banking
We teach financial education to help teens get on the path toward budgeting, saving, planning for college, and financial freedom.
Project Learn 
Project Learn reinforces and enhances the skills and knowledge young people learn at school during the hours they spend at the Club. 
My.Future
This technology-based program provides members of all ability levels with a foundation of technology skills that explore three central themes: building, exploring and communicating. 
Music
Our staff is tremendously talented! One of those talents includes music. Staff works one-on-one with members to teach them guitar, piano, drums, and help with members' band instruments. 
Art
Weekly art projects allow youth to be creative and work either independently or in groups to complete their projects.

Character and leadership

Keystone Club
A selective program for those 14 and older, Keystone builds leadership skills by challenging youth to “develop many virtues and characteristics of positive, ethical leaders.” Members serve as leaders in the Club, earning opportunities to fill officer positions, plan and implement Teen Nights, and operate the Keystone Cafe.
Torch Club
Members 13 and younger may join Torch Club to develop their leadership and teamwork skills. Members of Torch fill officer positions and focus on community service projects.
Social Action Project
Members will identify a tobacco-related issue that they wish to address in order to affect a policy change, access change, or culture change. The goal is to make tobacco as unappealing as possible to youth.
Cowboy Ethics
Members put timeless principles of The Cowboy Way into their every day lives. They follow lessons such as "Live each day with courage," "Take pride in your work," and "Ride for the brand."
Youth of the Year
Members can compete for the prestigious Youth of the Year title. This program highlights academic achievements, contributions to the community and overall character. Our local winner will go on to compete at the state level and have the opportunity to advance to regional and national levels. Many benefits, such as scholarship opportunities, come with the title of Youth if the Year.
Community Service
Club members regularly help in the community with a variety of public service opportunities.

Healthy lifestyles

SPARK / Triple Play
Members spend at least 30 minutes each day engaged in fun activities designed to encourage an active lifestyle. Members take pre-tests and post-tests to show progress on aspects like flexibility, aerobic ability, strength, and stamina.
SMART Moves
A nationally acclaimed prevention program, this uses various activities designed to hone members' decision-making and critical-thinking skills, as well as teaches them how to avoid and/or resist alcohol, tobacco, other drugs and premature sexual activity.
Internet Safety
Members are required to complete our internet safety course before using the computer lab. It is an interactive way of teaching young people how to be safe, recognize dangers, and act as good digital citizens when online.
Meal Program
Members help prepare, cook, and serve our daily snack and meal. We provide healthy, well-balanced meals in accordance with CACFP (Child and Adult Care Food Program).

Mentoring program

Boys & Girls Club of Fremont County is unique among Clubs in that it offers a site-based one-to-one mentoring program. The program matches youth with caring adults who will listen, lead, and share their experience. The outcomes for programs like this are clear: youth matched with mentors show greater success in academics, are more likely to avoid risky behaviors, to become a positive citizen in their community, and to live a healthy lifestyle.
