MGM Resorts Foundation presented the Boys & Girls Clubs of Las Vegas with a $69,000.00 check on Tuesday, July 18! It was a great day at our Lied location when MGM surprised us with this huge check that will fund our S.M.A.R.T Moves & Project Learn Programs. These programs help our kids in two of our 5 core areas of focus. The two areas include Health & Life Skills and Education & Career Development. Thank you so much MGM employees for helping promote and enhance the development of boys and girls in the Las Vegas Area!
SMART Moves (Skills Mastery and Resistance Training) – This program helps young people resist alcohol, tobacco and other drug use, as well as premature sexual activity and features engaging, interactive, small-group activities that increase participants’ peer support, enhance their life skills, build their resiliency and strengthen their leadership skills. The program has different age-appropriate curricula.
Project Learn – reinforces and enhances the skills and knowledge young people learn at school during the hours they spend at the Club through high-yield learning activities, such as leisure reading and writing activities.
