Ferguson residents especially the teens are excited about the opening of the new Boys & Girls Club opening up soon.

The location which is over 26,000 square feet, will be located on West Florissant Ave, which is close to multiple school districts. Opening this will help to give our youth something to do to keep them motivated and occupied.

The center is set to offer summer programs and afterschool activities that focus on health and wellness. There will be an open gym along with workforce and education development. Some of the programs include college tours, ACT/SAT prep, tutoring), STEAM (coding, app creation, robotics) and leadership & civic engagement (fine and performing arts, community service, applied arts).

Registration will open in September for children and teens ages 12-18.
