Natchitoches Boys & Girls Club Campaign
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Acadiana has been serving the kids who need us most for 51 years! We are excited to be bringing a Club back to Natchitoches to provide a safe, fun and high-quality experience for youth in the community.
The Club provides afterschool and summer programs for youth ages 6-18, focusing on 3 impact areas: Academic Success, Healthy Lifestyles & Habits and Good Character & Leadership. Kids receive healthy meals/snacks daily, homework help, guidance from highly-trained staff and a safe place to learn and grow.
Thanks to some amazing partners like the City of Natchitoches, Alliance Compressors, and a group of local advisory council members, the Club is estimated to open January 2022.
This is where YOU come in! Our capital campaign provides the structure to open the Club and the sustainability to operate in Natchitoches for many years to come. We know that kids need a safe and positive place to be after school and YOU can help us impact the lives of kids right here in Natchitoches by making a donation!
Our Campaign Goal = $300,000
