Serving Those Who Need Us Most
The Boys & Girls Club of Elkhart opened its doors to Elkhart school children in 2010, and has since seen rapid and amazing growth in the number of youth served. A full menu of youth development programming is now offered at Osolo and Beardsley Elementary Schools, and at North Side Middle School.
Beginning in 2013, the Boys & Girls Club of Elkhart has partnered with the Indiana Department of Education as a 21st Century Community Learning Center. Through the 21stCCLC, members are able to receive academic tutoring from certified Elkhart School classroom teachers, and participate in creative learning activities such as robotics and other STEM programming. Over 265 members participate each and every day the Club is open, and membership now tops 700.
It's full speed ahead in Elkhart, as the community continues to generously support the membership growth and expansion of services. Leadership is always reaching toward the next group of unserved young people, to inspire them to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.
