The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Piedmont Core Programs engage young people in activities with adults, peers, and family members that enable them to reach their full potential. Based on the interests and needs of the boys and girls that we serve, the Club offers diverse program activities in five key areas:

Character and Leadership Development-This program area empowers youth to support and influence their Club and community, sustain meaningful relationships with others, develop a positive self-image, participate in the democratic process and respect their own and others’ cultural identities.

Education and Career Development-This program area enables youth to become proficient in basic educational disciplines, apply learning to everyday situations, and embrace technology to achieve success in a career.

Health and Life Skills-This program area develops young people’s capacity to engage in positive behaviors that nurture their own well being, set personal goals, and live successfully as self-sufficient adults.

The Arts-This program area enables youth to develop their creativity and cultural awareness through knowledge and appreciation of the visual arts, crafts, performing arts, and creative writing.

Sports, Fitness, and Recreation- This program area develops fitness, positive use of leisure time, skills for stress management, appreciation for the environment, and social skills.
