About Boys and Girls Club Day
When is Boys and Girls Club Day? This holiday is always celebrated on May 19
Boys and Girls Club Day, a May 19 holiday, celebrates the invaluable Boy’s Clubs and Girl’s Clubs around the country. There are clubs all over America providing safe recreational activities for our youth. They teach values, morals, and citizenship. Clubs teach a variety of life skills. They help to keep kids out of trouble and off of the street. And, the clubs’ leaders are the perfect role models that so many children and especially teens are lacking in their life.
Today is a day to recognize the importance of these groups for our children and to the community. With more and more parents at work, and broken families, these groups take on added importance.
