Thank you to Capital One for a grant in the amount of $15,000 to support Project Learn for our members. Project Learn reinforces the academic enrichment and school engagement of young people during the time they spend at the Club.
This strategy is based on research demonstrating that students do much better in school when they spend their non-school hours engaged in fun, but academically beneficial, activities. Through Project Learn, Club staff use all the areas and programs in the Club to create opportunities for these high-yield learning activities, which include leisure reading, writing activities, discussions with knowledgeable adults, helping others, homework help, tutoring and games (such as Scrabble), that develop young people’s cognitive skills. Project Learn also emphasizes parent involvement and collaboration between Club and school professionals as critical factors in creating the best after-school learning environment for Club members ages 6 to 18.
Thank you Capital One!
We would like to give a huge thank you to Insomniac Events and Pasquale Rotella for choosing to benefit the Clubs after this year’s Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC). Yesterday they presented a $25,000 check to our Club kids at the Downtown Clubhouse! They also donated $25,000 to the Injured Police Officer’s Fund and the University of Nevada School of Medicine. Our Clubhouse Director, Ms. Flor made Pasquale an honorary member of the Clubs. Thank you so much for supporting our Clubs and wonderful community!
Boys Nite Out is a very special and unique fundraising event of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Las Vegas. On one evening each year, several hundred boys from the Clubs are matched up with several hundred men from the community. Together, they play a variety of games, enjoy a special meal and win wonderful prizes. Many of the boys come from single-parent, disadvantaged homes and the one-on-one attention they receive from the men is a very precious gift. Boys Nite Out is free to our young members – funds are raised from individual donations and corporate sponsors.
Boys & Girls Clubs of Las Vegas and Boys & Girls Clubs of Henderson announced plans to merge, creating a stronger organization to better serve the more than 30,000 youths in 17 locations throughout Clark County.
