The Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows recently set-up its 21st area location underneath the iconic Reno Arch during Hot August Nights, the region’s largest special event. This local Great Futures Rally (pop-up Club) was part of the national launch of the Great Futures Campaign for Boys & Girls Club of America.
The Great Futures Campaign is an initiative to mobilize the country in support of kids and empower our nation’s youth to achieve success. The Campaign looks to elevate the critical role out-of-school time plays in a child’s chance for a great future. Every day, 15 million kids leave school with no place to go, putting them at risk of being unsupervised, unguided and unsafe.
As a leading advocate for youth, Boys & Girls Clubs nationwide want to ensure every child has access to a safe place after school and during the summer where they can build the knowledge, skills and behaviors to put them on the right path. Through the Great Futures Campaign, the Boys & Girls Club wants to transform the future of our kids, community and country.
