BOYS & GIRLS CLUB
The Positive Place for Kids
At Foundation For Youth, we are dedicated to creating a positive place for our FFY Kids through different aspects of programming.
We create meaningful programs during the After School Season which include time in our state-of-the-art Maker's Studio, Comcast xFinity Computer Lab, Cranium Bowl, Game Room, Playground, Gymnasiums and MORE!
During the Summer Season, it's FFY Summer of Exploration where FFY Kids discover a world of possibilities and friendships with special field trips, time away at Columbus Youth Camp, and so much MORE all culminating with an FFY Kid Talent Show and End of Summer Carnival.
During fall/spring break time, FFY is here to provide even more programming so our FFY Kids will get the most out of their time off. Games, scavenger hunts, staff versus club member basketball and so much MORE are awaiting our FFY Kids!
And all that is just for our FFY Kids in Kindergarten to Sixth grades! Check out our #FFYTeens section for the most active teen programming in our community.
At the Boys and Girls Club at Foundation for Youth, we serve all school aged youth from 5-18 years old.
"Because of the Club [at FFY], I was able to form a friendship that genuinely changed my outlook on life and the concept of making friends."
Caroline A., 2021 Youth of the Year
“To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.”
BOYS & GIRLS CLUB 5 KEY ELEMENTS
SAFE, POSITIVE ENVIRONMENT
We strive to create an environment which promotes both physical and emotional safety and health every day. We institute programs and policies to protect our youth from the internet, from bullying, and from physical harm. We want FFY Kids to feel safe enough to trust, to grow, and to be themselves. In addition to providing a safe environment, we provide youth with the tools they need to solve problems in a positive way.
BE STRONG - BE YOURSELF - BE SAFE.
