Boys & Girls Club of Greater Baton Rouge in the News

Fore!Kids Foundation Grant Awarded

The Fore!Kids Foundation has awarded $5,000 to the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Baton Rouge. The grant will support the Club's Summer Brain Gain integrated reading program at eight summer enrichment program sites in East Baton Rouge Parish for 2018.

Summer Brain Gain is designed to help readers below grade level fall in love with books and achieve higher levels of thinking and expression, and incorporates STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) education through hands-on literacy-based activities and group projects.

For 2018, the Club's goal is to impact 500 youth, ages 6-17, by implementing Summer Brain Gain across these eight summer enrichment program sites.
