The Eden Boys & Girls Club has been helping youth succeed for decades, but they are well aware of the issues facing today’s kids. Here’s the story of just one.
A young man, 12 years old, recently moved to Eden and had no place to go after school. He had not made many friends or felt a part of this community.
Today he is getting help with his homework, is on the A-B honor roll, playing organized sports, and volunteering in the community. He says he feels a sense of belonging, hope and opportunity.
This has all been made possible because of your continued support of the United Way to the Boys & Girls Club of Eden and their scholarship program.
Together, we help children and youth succeed through mentoring, education, character building, leadership training, and quality childcare. We help preschool children prepare for their education with quality, age appropriate literature that encourages them to be readers for life. We help adults succeed in the workforce through continuing education in literacy programs.
