Boys & Girls Clubs of America
The Boys & Girls Clubs of America work with millions of young people to develop essential life skills, establish lasting connections, and – of course – have fun on the way. Club members undertake proven summer and after-school programs that are focusing on their academic success, leading healthy lifestyles, building good character, and citizenship.
The Boys and Girls Club gives young people the power to reach their potential and be caring, productive, members of society through the supportive relationships with mentors that care about them and their well being.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of America
Big Brothers Big Sisters of America is about providing mentoring to youths that need it. Big Brothers and Big Sisters connect caring volunteers with underprivileged kids since 1904 to offer professional support and establish mentoring relationships to put the kids on the right path to success.
If young people are provided with a caring adult to influence them, it makes them less likely to indulge in risky behaviors, and they are more apt to focus on their studies. The youth of today must face a range of challenges, and being paired up with the right Big Brother or Big Sister could help them move past these challenges and live out their potential.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital never charge families for their treatment, travel, food, or housing through St Jude Children’s Hospital. St. Jude firmly believe that parents should only ever concern themselves with keeping their children alive and helping them to live.
St. Jude has become a prominent children’s hospital, spearheading research and treatment for children with life-threatening illnesses such as cancer. This hospital is the only Comprehensive Cancer Center designated by the National Cancer Institute to be entirely dedicated to children.
The treatments discovered by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital have helped to boost cancer survival rates for children from just 20% to 80% since the hospital first opened their doors over 50 years ago. St. Jude continues to work to bring this figure for cancer survival in children to 90% and then will push forward until no child ever dies from cancer again. Any discovery made at the hospital is freely shared, and for every child that St. Jude saves, scientists and doctors around the world gain knowledge and insight that can help to save even more.
Boy Scouts of America
Boy Scouts of America is a major youth organization – if not the largest – in the US. Their goal is to train young people to be responsible citizens, build character, and become self-reliant.
The Boy Scouts is a year-round program that aims to meet the needs of boys and families. They offer challenging but fun activities designed to promote physical fitness and build character. Involving the family is an essential aspect of being a boy scout, and parents of scouts are encouraged to take advantage of the time they spend with their children shaping their future. Scouting is a primarily outdoor activity. Scouts embark on a variety of outdoor activities including camping, hiking, skateboarding, mountain biking, mountain climbing, BMX, kayaking, whitewater rafting, and more.
