The Boys & Girls Club of Hilton Head Island
Great futures start everyday at the Boys & Girls Club of Hilton Head Island. This club is a safe and fun place for club members to interact with friends, classmates and staff while they enjoy a wide variety of educational, recreational, cultural and social activities. The Club provides young people with hope and opportunity, a safe place to learn and grow, life-enhancing programs, character-building experiences, and the chance to develop relationships with caring and professional adults.
The mission of the Boys & Girls Club of Hilton Head Island, and in every corner of the United States, is “to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.”
This grant helped the students of the Boys & Girls Club of Hilton Head Island.
The grant allowed the Boys and Girls Club to expand the program to encompass most of the educational areas of the club. With the grant, the major emphasis is on connections between STEM education and arts-infused curricula adding the element of critical thinking to FUN activities.
The inclusion of the STEM education and fine arts activities at the Boys and Girls Club has allowed the students to have new experiences, with critical thinking elements. The importance of critical thinking is now a strong element in elementary and middle school studies, emphasizing the why’s and how’s instead of just correct answers on a batteries of tests. In their concentration on academic support for all their members, they are incorporating their “outside the box” arts programming to help those who are academically challenged learn in new ways.
Once again, First Nonprofit offered our members amazing opportunities to learn and experience enrichment in ways they have never had before. We continue to be deeply appreciative of your support and how it has opened the minds of our children and given them a new way to consider how their lives can unfold.
