At the Boys & Girls Club of Dane County, we believe that every child should have a safe, enriching place to go after school and in the summer. With two Club locations in Madison, and the largest public/private partnership in both the Madison and Verona School Districts, we offer more than just a safe place to go. Our programs fuel kids with the inspiration to dream and the skills to achieve through (1) character and leadership development, (2) education and career development, (3) health and life skills, (4) the arts, and (5) sports, fitness and recreation.
Because of our supporters, we’ve accomplished many great things this year!
• 99% of our seniors in our college-prep program graduated and 82% are in college this semester
• 205 high school teens and college students participated in paid internships this summer
• We renovated our Taft Club to encompass a new STEM Lab, which will introduce kids to new careers in this field
• We launched the only Community Fitness Center in South Madison at our Taft Club and are doing the same at Allied • We served over 40,000 healthy meals, ensuring no kids go hungry at night
• The Club awarded more than $175k in scholarships to over a dozen local students in this year
But we want to do more and reach more kids in Dane County. And you can help! Help us close the year off strong and open the door to our kids in Dane County this holiday season. Be Great, Be Grateful, Be Giving. Give the gift of a great future!
