Fundraising Events
 
Steak and Burger
Steak and Burger is a fundraiser that allows youth and donors to share a meal. The fun part is that youth eat the steaks and adults eat the burgers. This event is a great opportunity for youth, who may not otherwise be able to enjoy a steak meal to do so with the experience of dining with others. It allows donors an opportunity to interact with the youth they support. The next Steak and Burger dinner will be held on April 20, 2017 at the The Star Center, 1119 Old Humboldt Rd  Jackson, TN 38305. The Guest speaker will be two time Olympic Gold and Silver Medalist Rochelle Stevens.

A program which illuminates the importance of after school programs.
 

Boys & Girls Clubs Day for Kids is an annual day to celebrate and honor America’s children, while encouraging adults to spend meaningful time with them.  Boys & Girls Clubs of America, in collaboration with other leading youth service organizations, promotes relationship-building activities that create positive and memorable experiences for children across our country.

Research shows that when adults spend meaningful time with kids, it helps them develop a positive self-image and a sense of belonging, usefulness and purpose.  So Boys & Girls Clubs of America created Day for Kids to build stronger relationships between adults and children hosting fun family activities across the country.  Day for Kids provides a chance for every adult to take a break, celebrate, and renew their commitment to their children.  Past events have included field games, jumpers, carnival games, arts & crafts, giveaways, and food.  There is no cost and the event is open to the public.

Nearly 4,000 Boys & Girls Clubs throughout the United States, its territories and on U.S. military installations around the world open their doors to help youth find their great futures. Through fun, educational and innovative programs, our Clubs help kids and teens meet their full potential. During this week neighborhood Clubs demonstrate their local impact through programs, tours, and events.

Summer Camp

During the summer, parents and students can take advantage of programs at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Jackson. They offer a number of engaging activities to:

1.  Build one-on-one tutoring relationships.

2.  Create collaborative projects where young people work together to complete a project.

3.  Engage in high-yield learning activities, including games that use cognitive skills, reading and writing activities, and creating short plays, skits or musical pieces.  These activities help continue cognitive development during summer break and help prevent a summer learning loss.

4.  Create projects that encourage parental involvement.

Summer camps consist of various programs, activities, and field trips in the Boys & Girls Club’s core program areas: Education and Career Development; Health & Life Skills; the Arts; Sports, Fitness & Recreation; and Character & Leadership Development. Young people participating in the summer programs can be expected to receive the following benefits: improved attitude towards learning, daily opportunities to practice academic skills (reading and writing), and improved self-esteem.
