JULY 2017 Boys and Girls CLUB NEWS

Our Summer Program Ends July 28th Register Now for After School!!

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Fe/Del Norte is the oldest provider of after school programs in Northern New Mexico. From August-May of each year, we operate our award-winning After School Program at Club sites, Monday-Friday from 3:30 to 6:00 pm.

We provide programming to children on most school holidays and breaks, as well as in-service and parent/teacher conference days. Transportation is provided from the following schools to our Clubs in Santa Fe:

ALTO – Gonzales, Aspen, Carlos Gilbert

CAMINO DE JACOBO – Ramirez Thomas, Sweeney

VALLE VISTA – Turquoise Trail, Amy Biehl

ZONA – Cesar Chavez, Sweeney, Nino Otero, El Camino Real, Santa Nino, Ortiz, Pinon, Nava, Kearney, Turquoise Trail, Chaparral, EJ Martinez

​Research has shown that kids who participate in after school programs have:

  • Higher grades and test scores
  • Improved attitudes toward school, higher expectations for school achievement, better work habits, and higher attendance rates.
  • Lower youth involvement in risky behaviors: drinking, smoking, using drugs, having sex, and becoming involved in violence
  • Significant increase in positive behaviors: social and behavioral adjustment, better relations with peers, more effective conflict resolution strategies, and increased parent involvement

More information about our 2017-2018 After School Program is available on our website at www.bgcsantafe.org/membership along with the application form.
