ABOUT: The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Flint is a positive and safe place for all children, with special attention for those from challenged circumstances, to attend after school, on select Saturdays and during the summer. It costs only $10 per year for a child to become a member (assistance available), while the actual cost of providing service is about $350 per child. The difference is made up through grants, foundations, individual donors and support from corporate partners. The Boys & Girls Club provides programming to 1,800 local youngsters in five core areas: Sports, Fitness & Recreation, the Arts, Character & Leadership Development, Education & Career Development, and Health & Life Skills.
