“I like the Boys & Girls Club because it is a place to come and know it is safe and get my homework done.  Also, I like to hang out.  If I have nothing to do after school I can come and do my homework.  Because I’m coming here I’m getting good grades compared to when I didn’t come as much.”

- Club Member and 9th Grade Student at Burlington High School
