Since the core of our mission statement is “to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential”, Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade has done extensive research in finding and administering safe and structured programming to help our youth members to become “productive, caring and responsible citizens.”
Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s Project Learn provides high-quality After-School services for children, 5-16 years old. Project Learn program offers core programming such as: homework assistance, arts & crafts, literacy and social skills. Additional programs include: music instruction, tennis, karate, dance, and intramural sports. The program runs concurrently with Miami-Dade County Public Schools’ schedule. The Clubs are also open on Teacher Planning Days and Spring Break.
Our after school academic program and homework assistance, organized league basketball, baseball, football, cheerleading, and tennis programs are offered on a year-round basis in order to keep the children occupied as long as possible in a healthy, safe, productive, and enjoyable environment. Over 60% of youth crime is committed between the hours of 2-6pm. With our programs, we help decrease the number of children in the streets in the after-school hours, as well as during the weekends.
