I might not have entered the Club at a great time in my life, but it helped me get there. It helped me learn how much I could grow as a person. I learned to let go of what isn’t helping me. I learned to embrace my inner child. I grew to love myself and appreciate myself. Many may look at The Boys & Girls Club and just see a center for kids to hang out, but for us, The Boys & Girls Club is a home away from home.
