I know that the people at the Boys & Girls Club of Dayton are helping me learn things so I can be a singer when I grow up. They’ve taught me that I can choose other ways to handle myself when I get mad. So now when I get mad and have a hard time, I draw. I really, really love it there, and it’s important to have a club for the kids in my neighborhood. With the club, I know I am going to have a great future.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Dayton makes it possible for me to have a safe and fun place to be after school so I can finish my homework, make friends, learn about coding, have dinner, play games and do other cool things like robotics. My dad, my grandma, my brother and I are so grateful for the Boys & Girls Club and all they have done for me and other kids in West Dayton. Boys & Girls Clubs matter to kids like me, so please support clubs so we have to keep them going.
