The Atascadero Site of the Boys & Girls Club is a cool and exciting place for your child to spend time after school!
We are excited to bring Atascadero our award winning after-school program in support of kids and empowering today’s youth to achieve great futures. The Atascadero branch of the Club is expanding to serve 75 middle school youth in grades 4th through 8th. The Boys & Girls Club of North San Luis Obispo County program reaches kids most in need with outcome-driven programs designed to increase their performance in the areas of education, health and character development.
Research shows that when kids attend the Club more frequently, the impact grows, so Clubs create a fun and engaging environment that keeps kids coming back.
The Boys & Girls Club of North SLO County seeks to ensure that every child and teen has access to a safe place after school and during the summer where they can build the knowledge, skills and behaviors to put them on the path for success.
We offer many great programs to our Club members during the school year.
Power Hour is our homework completion program, Torch Club which is a leadership and community service club, SMART Girls class offers young women guidance toward healthy attitudes and lifestyles, eating right, staying fit, getting good health care and more, as well as rotating sports, craft, arts, cooking classes and ongoing mentoring.
Every day, 15 million kids nationwide (1 out of 4) leave school with no place to go1, putting them at risk of being unsupervised, unguided and unsafe. During the summer, an alarming 43 million (3 out of 4) kids in America lack access to summer learning programs2, increasing their risk of learning loss and putting them at a disadvantage before the school year starts. The way a child spends their time after school and during the summer can significantly impact the path they take.
“When school is out, no child should go unsafe or unguided. We are advocating on behalf of kids and convening public, private and nonprofit partners around our goal of ensuring all kids have access to a safe, engaging and productive place to go between school and home.” – Todd Evenson, Board Chair
