After School All Stars Association
The Boys & Girls Club's KIDSTOP after-school child care program ensures that, in those crucial after-school hours, participating children are in a safe place with professional caring adult staff and volunteers. Every day, children are able to channel youthful energy into challenging pursuits through our five core program areas: Character & Leadership Development, Education & Career Development, Health & Life Skills, The Arts and Sports, Fitness & Recreation.
Unfortunately, too many children haven't been given that opportunity. Nationwide at least 8 million children are left unsupervised after school. For these children, after-school hours are the most dangerous, because this is when children are most likely to commit or become the victim of crime. For many others, the afternoon hours are simply a period of idle and wasted time, when opportunities to be mentored and academically challenged are squandered.
You can add a little magic to their lives by sponsoring a child to attend KIDSTOP.
Your $1,500 sponsorship will enable a child to attend after-school KIDSTOP for an entire school year.
KIDSTOP program offerings:
- Life-enhancing programs that help young people see their possibilities
- Full-time professional leadership
- Nutritious snacks are provided daily
- KIDSTOP is open every day from school dismissal until 6 p.m.
- KIDSTOP is open most school holidays and during the summer
Each school year, the Boys & Girls Club has provided at least 150 KIDSTOP scholarships, but there are still so many children whose lives would be changed by a quality after-school program. In fact, we know that we could serve at least 100 more kids with your help.
