About

The Boys & Girls Club of the Grand River Area is a 501 C 3 non-profit organization that has been in existence since 1999. It has been a safe and happy place for children and youth over the years, touching the lives of over 2,000 children and youth in the small community of McLaughlin, SD on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation. The majority of which are Native American. Many of the parents of current children who are club members, were once club members themselves.

Continued support and funding is needed for programs and services that the club provides to member. Programs such as; youth leadership, tutoring, mentoring, diabetes prevention, and others.

According to recent studies, children who are unsupervised after school are not only in danger of becoming victims of crimes or accidents; they are also at risk in other less dramatic but equally troubling ways. These children are at risk of falling behind academically, socially, and emotionally. They are at higher risk than other children and youth of substance abuse and gang involvement. Programs such as the Boys & Girls Club keep kids safe and inspire them to learn in a supportive environment.

HELP US TO KEEP THE DOORS OPEN

Continued support and funding is needed for programs and services that the club provides to members. Programs such as; youth leadership, tutoring, mentoring, diabetes prevention, and others are just part of what we bring to the community. With only a few people on our staff and the help of volunteers, being able to open our doors is the most important part of providing what we do.
