The Boys and Girls Clubs of Saline County is more than just a safe place for youth to spend time during after school hours. The Club is also a place to play, have fun, laugh and learn. Our diverse programs support a commitment to learning, positive values, healthy habits, and high expectations for success as an adult. There are a great deal of exciting things happening in our club, which is why we are expanding our family programs. The Boys and Girls Clubs of Saline County is pleased to initiate the Family PLUS (Parents Leading, Uniting, and Serving) program. Our goal is to provide additional support for our club members and their familes through family events, community resources, and expanded technology access; as well as developing a strong relationship between school and home.
At this time I would like to introduce myself. My name is Jewel Windsor, and I am the new Family Engagement Specialist here at the club. I am a life-long resident of Benton and am currently pursuing my Master's in Education. I'm really looking forward to this opportunity to connect our members and parents to all the amazing resources our community has to offer. This is a GREAT organization and I'm excited to be a part of the team!
The Club plans to host monthly events for club members and their families beginning in October. This is an opportunity to provide educational activities as well as offering important information about available community resources. Keep checking our webpage as well as our social media outlets to stay current with future events. I'm excited to continue to strengthen our Club's connection with our members.
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
