Organized into 10-week programs throughout the year, the initiatives noted below encompass the primary curriculum carried out by trained personnel across all of Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Mississippi’s Units.  These programs encourage youth to value educational achievement, help them develop their academic skills, provide opportunities for career exploration, and create aspirations for the future in preparation for a career and successful life. Boys & Girls Clubs professionals are informal educators and strive to ensure that all Club youth, through their experiences at school and with the Club, are able to make good post-secondary education decisions.
