BGC Lynchburg Va youth education opportunities collaborations

(all members ages 6-18)

The key to the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Lynchburg’s success is rooted in our collaborations.

We use the opportunities and professional support of community leaders to bring learning into everything we do. In nearly five years, we have collaborated with 65 community organizations including:

  • Big Brothers & Big Sisters
  • YMCA
  • Parks & Recreation
  • ArtZone
  • Master Gardeners
  • Lynchburg Hillcats
  • River Ridge Mall
  • Taco Bell
  • YWCA
  • Girls Scouts
  • Lynch’s Landing
  • Amazement Square
  • Genworth Financial
  • Dance Theater of Lynchburg
  • Woodman of the World
  • Jubilee Family Services
  • Presbyterian Homes
  • Sylvan Learning Center
  • Commonwealth Attorney’s Office
  • Lynchburg Police Department

Our philosophy is that we can do it better if we work together.

The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Lynchburg also provides programming in the arts, nutrition, sports and fitness. These programs, like all programs offered through the Club, are open to all members ages 6 through18. Clubs vary their schedules to engage the largest number of members in the greatest variety of enhancement opportunities. The result is that the total Club becomes a learning center.

Members use math skills in the gymnasium for scorekeeping, in the kitchen for cooking, in the art room for measuring, etc. They practice literacy skills by reading rules to a new game, writing an article in the Club newsletter, or writing poetry for the bulletin board. Learning becomes synonymous with Club activities and Club members cannot wait to be a part of the fun!
