Update from the Gilbert Boys and Girls Club


Celebrating Youth Event:

Join us for an exciting evening honoring our Youth of the Year Candidates & the 2022 YOY for Boys & Girls Clubs of the Valley.
Friday, January 28th, 2022
6:00-7:00 p.m.
During this free virtual event, you will be able meet our top teens from around the Valley!
Have a teen that is interested in becoming an electrician? How about a roofing expert? Maybe a healthcare professional?
AZYouthforce has opportunities for all of those career pathways – and more. Applications are currently open for nine separate internships! Help your teen prepare for their future with an AZYouthforce internship.
Interns attend essential skills training (“the Academy”) before they are placed in their internship. Then they get paired with a coach who supports them the whole way through. Plus, all internships are paid!
Applications for summer internships are due March 17th.

Catch Up With The Club!

During the last few months our members have been engaged in the DIY STEM program.
DIY STEM is a hands-on, activity-based STEM curriculum which connects youth aged 9-12 to science themes they encounter regularly. Members are shown designing and building a bridge from popsicle sticks using engineering specifications that can hold varying weights.
During our Fall sessions, eight Clubs have participated in E-sports programming. Members learned various tactics and strategies that they used during competitive gaming. Our members focused on Super Smash Bros. and Rocket League on the Nintendo Switch platform.
Recently our members competed in the race to Championship Weekend Rocket League Gamerthon with the finals taking place at the NASCAR Championship Open on Nov 6th.


This holiday season brought the most memorable Club parties we could ask for! Thank you families, volunteers and sponsors for all your help!
Check out this quick recap video of all the fun we had!
