Delaware Boys & Girls Clubs
For more than 85 years, Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware has impacted thousands of lives across Delaware. They are the largest licensed provider of childcare in Delaware and the only statewide Boys & Girls Club in the nation.
Each and every day girls and boys are left to find their own recreation and companionship. An increasing amount of kids are at home with no adult care or supervision. Young people need to know they have a place in their community where they can go. Clubs provide a safe haven for youth, allow them to meet with friends and be a part of positive peer groups. Club programs teach life skills, conflict resolution and focus on the development of character. Clubs also provide members with positive role models and a nurturing environment that help improve decision-making skills.
The reason for the success of the relationship between Delaware Credit Unions and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware is a shared commitment to service. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware mission statement clearly states that commitment:
"To inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, responsible, caring citizens."
Through this partnership, credit unions have the opportunity to provide support directly to a club in their community, or participate in state-wide activities.
