Give Back Tahoe: Boys & Girls Club creates great futures
August 17, 2016
Since 1998, the Boys & Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe has been inspiring local children to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.
Today, with help from community partners and generous donors, the Boys & Girls Club is able to provide fun out-of-school time programming for over 2,500 children annually.
Children ages 3 to 18 years old have access to enriching and academically focused programs at the Club in Kings Beach, at The Great Futures Early Learning Preschool and at the 2 year old Truckee Club.
Whether they come for a free meal or to get help with homework, every child that walks through the doors of the Boys & Girls Club is given the opportunity of a GREAT FUTURE.
Currently, summer programming is in full swing. Over 200 children per day participate in activities that are fun, promote healthy lifestyles and prevent summer reading loss.
This summer, for the first time, transportation from Truckee to the Kings Beach Club is available to members, giving more Truckee families access to affordable summer programming.
