Project Overview

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest Missouri needs another passenger van to transport Club Members to the Club during our After School Program. Currently, we use four vans to pick-up students from seven local elementary schools. Two vans take an additional trip. Because the space is limited on the vans, some kids may wait an hour after school before they make it to the Club. An additional van will help us get more kids to a safe environment quicker.

The van will also be used to take youth on field trips to local parks and nature centers, as well as teens to college campus tours and volunteer activities in the community. Each trip allows the children to gain hands on experience as they participate in activities and develop skills for the future.

Founded in 1957, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest Missouri has been serving the Joplin community for over 61 years.  We provide a safe, nurturing and caring environment for youth ages 6-18 through after school and summer programs.

All members receive help completing homework, access to a fully-equipped computer lab, gym and recreation time, and the opportunity to build meaningful relationships with professional staff and other Club members.  Each of our members participates in drug and alcohol prevention programs that help them realize their worth and potential in life.  We provide a fully balanced meal every evening to all of our members and breakfast, lunch, and a snack throughout the summer program.  We use vans to pick-up students from local elementary schools and to transport youth on fieldtrips.  Our after school program costs a mere $25.00 per semester or $50.00 for the entire school year. Our summer program runs nine weeks and costs $270.00 per child. 

We offer programs in the five core areas of: Character & Leadership, Education & Career, Health & Life Skills, The Arts, and Sports, Fitness, & Recreation.
