For over 3,500 kids a year, the Boys and Girls Club of Benton County is a home away from home. It is a safe place that provides after school programs and teaches life skills.
Two-year member of the Club, Reina Martinez said, “I spend a lot of time here. If I’m not at home, I’m usually here. I got involved to get the opportunity to do community service and meet other teens.” In addition to fun and games, the club also has leadership classes and provides positive influences for kids and teens.
“They’re getting a very positive environment, they’re getting additional help in their learning and they’re getting life skills to make good choices for their whole life,” explains Tregg Brown, who is on the the club’s Board of Directors.
