"The Boys & Girls Club of Burlington and it's staff are an asset in our community. They have taken an afterschool and summer venue to an entirely new level as they work with children to ensure they are able to live their dreams of finishing high school, going to college, finding a job and being successful."

“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.”

I like being at the Club....so much to do. We come here afterschool. We have drums and guitars and playing in the studio.We have lots of friends and staff to help us do our work. There are computers and air hockey and ping pong and a huge gym.

That place has meant soooo much to many many many people all around the country.... I know my children really utilized all that it had to offer and became better citizens because of it.
