Boys & Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities (BGCTC) prioritizes holistic health through its Health & Wellness strategy, which educates youth on fitness, nutrition, and mental well-being. Programs are designed to teach positive conflict resolution techniques, foster positive behaviors, and develop resilience skills that support the well-being of both mind and body. BGCTC staff receive ongoing trauma-informed training to create safe, supportive, and inclusive environments for all Club youth.

We invite you to join us in our dedication to the health and wellness of young people, both now and in the future, by contributing to Growing Strong. This initiative continues through March 31, 2024. A recurring monthly donation, no matter the amount, is one of the best ways to make a meaningful impact all year round.

Your donation to GROWING STRONG today will support critical needs for young people this year, including:

$25: Two Double Dutch jump rope sets

$50: Journals for one Club site

$100: Supplies needed for one Club cooking class

$500: Trauma Informed toolkits for Staff

$1,000: Seasonal gardening supplies for one Club summer program

Our Health & Wellness strategy develops young people’s capacity to live healthfully by educating youth about fitness, nutrition, and smart decision. Health & Wellness program activities focus on instilling positive conflict resolution techniques, engaging in positive behaviors, setting personal goals, and building resistance skills that nurture and strengthen youth at all ages of development.
