Boys & Girls Clubs of East Texas

Boys & Girls Clubs
After-School Programs

The Boys & Girls Clubs of East Texas, a ministry of The Mentoring Alliance, provides a dynamic opportunity for students from kindergarten through fifth grade to experience after-school care at its best. Students are led by loving staff members who seek to guide, support and mentor these students.

Members may attend the after-school program Monday through Friday from 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. at their school campus, which offers a level of comfort in a familiar setting. Students are provided snacks, homework assistance, physical activities, optional Bible Study and enrichment activities to enhance critical thinking skills.

Our highly trained staff is dedicated to nurturing the growth of the whole member, academically and emotionally in a fun and safe environment. After-school care at the Boys and Girls Clubs of East Texas is far from average. When your child leaves at the end of the day, you will find a happy, confident child that has been drawn one step closer to reaching their full potential.

As a mom, it’s great to know that my kids are in good hands. The Boys & Girls Clubs of East Texas has been great; everything with them has run smoothly for me.
