Skill Building for Success

‘For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster to give you a future and a hope.’ Jeremiah 29:11

It’s been a very busy and fun summer here at Boys and Girls Country!  Our kids are constantly in motion with summer jobs, cottage vacations, off-campus visits home, overnight camp opportunities, ACT/SAT prep, individual learning and tutoring, and special programs like this week’s Lego Challenge. Our very own office apprentice, Mekede, is juggling color guard practice, academic career counseling with one of our awesome volunteers, and helps update our social media and blog. As you can see below, she does it all with a big smile!



We’re so grateful for the opportunity to give our children extra support and individual guidance over the summer. Your generous support makes all of this possible. Would you consider making a gift to help kids like Mekede succeed all year? Your investment of $50, $100 or $150 does so much to give our children opportunities for success. Your gift today will ensure a successful start to the new school year.

Our very dedicated education volunteers and staff go above and beyond overseeing our summer program. If you’re interested in becoming a tutor, or just want to join our extended family of volunteers who help us maintain this vision, you can get more information here. Check out what we’ve been up to this summer in the gallery below!
