Day for Kids

September 21, 2013

Day for Kids is a national initiative that invites you to join Boys & Girls Clubs in making a difference for kids in your community. For more than a decade, adults have participated in Day for Kids events to advocate for youth and celebrate the life-changing work taking place at Boys & Girls Clubs.

Critical need for Clubs

Many young people face serious issues in childhood that can impact their success in adulthood:

  • 15.1 million children are home alone after school
  • 16.1 million youth live in poverty
  • 1 in 4 students fail to graduate from high school
  • Nearly 4,000 juveniles are arrested daily
  • One-third of kids are overweight

Our more than 4,000 Boys & Girls Clubs nationwide create a safe environment with resources and support to help youth create great futures. With more than 150 years’ experience serving approximately 4 million youth nationwide, we believe that the day a child enters our doors can change their life.
