The Boys & Girls Clubs of South Africa (BGCSA) are facility based after-school programs for school-aged young people, supervised by trained professionals providing daily structured programs and activities. Clubs are positive places for kids where Members can explore their talents and abilities in a supportive environment with the potential to transform their view on life creating a culture of opportunity and success.
The Club offers a variety of activities in 8 Core program areas designed to meet the interests and needs of members:
- POWER HOUR
- Power Hour helps Club Members achieve academic success by providing homework help, learning activities, tutoring, and encouraging Members to become self-directed learners.
- CAREER LAUNCH
- This program allows Club Members to explore a broad range of career areas, match their interest to careers, and identify the skills and education needed for their particular career path.
- PASSPORT TO MANHOOD
- The passage from boyhood to manhood is challenging, requiring adolescent males to understand and manage many issues and transitions. P2M addresses critical issues that young men face during this time.
- SMART GIRLS
- SMART Girls is a small group health, fitness, prevention/education and self-esteem enhancement program designed to meet the development needs of girls in their respective age groups.
