From games and athletics to drug prevention workshops, Boys & Girls Club of the Sandhills offers young people a range of fun and productive activities. Three Clubs, two in Southern Pines and one in Aberdeen, are open each day after school from 2:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. – when research has shown children to be most vulnerable to gangs, violence and other risky behaviors. In the summer, Clubs and special summer-only sites open their doors all day to young people with nowhere else to go.
A trained, caring staff implements proven youth development strategies and creates a stable, supportive environment for children and teens ages 5 to 18. Specially designed programs concentrate on developing job readiness, study skills, leadership, self-esteem, good health and social responsibility among Boys & Girls Club members.
