Youth and Our Community Need the Boys & Girls Club of Janesville
We provide a safe, positive environment to local youth after school and during the summer. We are the most affordable afterschool care option in the community at just $20 a month for elementary members.
We provide evidence-based programming that is an extension of the school day to all Janesville youth – especially those who need us most. We serve an average of 65 youth each day, with over 300 registered Club members ages 6-18.
