Programs

Site Lda 8Club programs provide opportunities to develop the skills and knowledge participants need to reach their full potential. Programs encourage healthy living, personal growth, learning, and community involvement.  Positive adult mentors guided by the Clubs core values  build self-esteem with engaging activities that teach the importance of mutual respect, teamwork and being socially responsible. Programs are accessible, affordable and address community needs. 

Clubs programs become more relevant to the modern world every day. At the Club children and youth are emotionally and physically safe, welcomed, accepted, valued, respected and enjoy exploring new opportunities.

Thanks to the Clubs staff, volunteers, many sponsors, partners, funder's, and the United Way for the City of Kawartha Lakes and the Clubs Foundation the Club implements programs and services that give children and youth the opportunity to reach their full potential, and make positive choices. Programs address community need, and gaps in services. The Club has seen an increased need for service and attendance in programs such as recreation, After School, nutrition, employment, child care support, family supports, youth supports, mental health and community outreach.

The Club is committed to having a meaningful, measurable impact on the health and well-being of young people, and families.

Financial Support

The Club “finds skills & abilities no one else would and looks for the best in you.” D. Williams

“I would like to express my sincere thanks. The After School program and other sports programs (basketball and biking) have been wonderful. These programs are important for smaller communities where traveling and gas are always a deciding factor to participating. Thank you again, your time and caring have not gone unnoticed.” Kirkfield program family

“I recommend the Boys and Girls Club to many of my friends and can’t say enough good things about it. We moved to town last summer and are so glad to have founds such a fun and nurturing place for our son to be during the summer and before and after school.” L.Vehrs

“The Club has given us quality care. My son was shy when he first started, but with the child centered activities that were of interest to him he is now a confident, social, friendly child. Even his teachers at his elementary school have commented on the positive impact the club has made in my son's life.” After School parent
