Boys & Girls Club Program Expands to Plano and Irving

Children participating in arts and crafts at the Boys & Girls Club
at The Salvation Army in Garland.
We’re excited to share that The Salvation Army is expanding our Boys & Girls Club program!  By the end of this year, we will have clubs in Garland, Waxahachie, Irving and Plano.

One of our new Boys & Girls Club programs is opening in Irving at The Gene & Jerry Jones Family Center for Youth. The children and youth in that area will be able to take part in “Project Learn,” which supports academic development at the local elementary and middle schools in the community.

The new Boys & Girls Club at our Plano Corps will offer a range of quality programs including nutrition, stress management, health & fitness, and how to form positive relationships with peers.

You may be wondering, why does The Salvation Army partner with the Boys & Girls Club? 

Working with the Boys & Girls Club makes perfect sense because our organizations have the same ultimate goal: to serve youth in low-income areas and encourage them to reach their full potential by providing a safe place to grow and learn. 

Over the past 150 years, The Boys and Girls club has developed a full curriculum that we are proud to offer at our centers.  Our clubs reinforce and develop positive behavior and skills while surrounding the youth with caring adult role-models.

Through their experiences at our Boys & Girls Clubs, many kids begin to dream about and explore potential career opportunities. We can’t wait to see what’s next for the youth in our programs.
