Super Boys Club
This Friday afternoon program for 4th and 5th grade boys offers them the opportunity to learn skills that will prepare the boys for middle school. Young boys who are part of the at-risk population have few role models to help them through the unique challenges that come with the transition from elementary to middle school. The Super Boys Club tackles developing self-esteem, dealing with peer pressure, going through puberty, enhancing social skills and more. Super Boys Club currently serves 27 boys in grades 4 and 5.
