#blacklivesmatter

We at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Kentuckiana condemn any act of racism or discrimination. We advocate for youth to have equitable opportunities and encourage young people to harness the power of their voice. We believe it is critical to speak up and take action because silence is complacency.

As a nation, we can and must demand change to support black people and anyone who faces systemic oppression. Together, we must take action to ensure the future is great for the millions of kids that are counting on us.

Boys & Girls Clubs are resilient, and we will do whatever it takes to meet the needs of kids and communities.

a focus on

mental health

Supporting the mental health of our youth and teens has never been so important. Our youth need to know that their mental health matters. They need to know we are committed to their mental wellness just like their academics and physical health. We will continue to listen, learn and teach ways for our youth to manage their emotions and build resiliency.
