Youth and Our Community Need the Boys & Girls Club of Janesville
We ensure that all children have access to a safe, positive environment during the critical hours between school and home – hours that can have a huge impact on a child’s future.
Every day in America, 1 out of 4 kids leave school with no place to go. There are 20 to 25 hours a week that children are out of school while parents work – hours when kids risk being unsupervised and unsafe.
We provide high-quality, after-school enrichment available to all Janesville youth – especially those who need us most. We serve an average of 55-65 youth each day, with nearly 300 registered Club members.
