  • "I think Boys & Girls Club is a great thing to do after school because you get a lot of help with homework and you get to go outside and hang out with friends and play sports."

    - Shannon, 8th grader
  • "The Club is a cool and fun place where I go to do my homework. After I started to go to the Club my grades drastically improved."

    - Darren, 7th grader
  • "The Boys & Girls Club is the place to be when you need to do homework. You can use the computers and printers and get help from one of the volunteers or staff. The Club is also fun because Niles, Caitlen, Laura and Sebastian are so funny."

    - German, 8th grader
  • "What Boys & Girls Club of the Coastside means to me: The Club is a place to come and do homework. It's also a place to come and hang out with friends. The Club is a lot of fun. We have field trips, activities, and all kinds of other things. The Staff is very nice and helpful and I don't think I could have done as well as I did in school without them. To me the Club is a home and we are all one big family."

    - Rudy, 7th grader
  • "When I first came to the Club I was in 6th grade, I was stubborn and argued a lot. The Staff was patient with me and helped me improve my attitude. I came into 8th grade a changed student. The Boys & Girls Club of the Coastside put me on the right path."
