Benefits of Membership

Learn new things. Make friends. Have fun. All these things are possible with participation in one of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Elkhart County.

A child’s membership to the Club has benefits beyond fun, however, oftentimes in lasting and life-altering ways.

A member can improve academically in any of our Learning Centers, receiving support and guidance from Club staff and volunteers.

They can learn the importance of being physically active and fit through the Club’s Sports/Fitness & Recreation programs.

The Club’s Health & Life Skills development programs teach them to adopt healthy lifestyles, eat properly and abstain from the use of alcohol, tobacco products and other drugs.

Dreaming of a future can become closer to reality through Career Development and the Arts.

Through Character/Leadership development, members learn that they have worth and so do those around them. They learn the importance - and the joy – of giving to others.

A Boys & Girls Club membership card is more than a piece of paper. It is a gift of a great future.
