Mark your calendar and plan to celebrate a Day for Kids on September 21, 2013 with your local Boys & Girls Club!
Created as a day to foster relationships between adults and children, the mission of BGC Day for Kids is to establish a day to celebrate and honor American children through the gift of meaningful time. Research shows that when adults spend meaningful time with kids it helps them develop a positive self-image and a sense of belonging, usefulness and purpose. Now, more than ever, BGC Day for Kids provides adults and kids an opportunity to take a break from their busy lives and celebrate the wonder of life and the fulfillment of spending time together.
Boys & Girls Clubs of America hopes to make BGC Day for Kids a permanent part of our national culture. Soon we hope the month of September not only recalls the full swing of the fall and back-to-school season, but also BGC Day for Kids, the day we devote our hearts and our minds to our children as a nation.
Help us celebrate kids and teens! Make it a Day for Kids!
