Giving the kids experiences that create hands-on opportunities

Future Chefs

Future Chefs was developed as a tribute to and in memory of Cindi Nikodym. Cindi was a wife, mother and grandmother who’s greatest joy was spending time with her family. Cindi loved to cook and knew that good food brought her family together, not only to nourish their bodies, but create life long memories of simply being together. Future Chefs teaches youth about kitchen basics and beyond...emphasizing the memories food can create and inspiring young minds to reach for Great Futures.

Tutoring & Homework Help

School age kids will benefit at every level from having support staff who facilitate homework help each day after school. Additional specialized tutoring is also available at some sites led by registered teachers and education assistants whose goal is to increase math and reading scores among participants. Kids and teens get a much-needed jump on the school year at Clubs during the summer. Boys & Girls Clubs help close the gap on summer learning loss by enabling kids to take advantage of tools like MyFuture. See the activities offered on MyFuture and try them out at home.
