City Council Proclaims April 9-13 as National Boys & Girls Club Week in Edinburg

EDINBURG, TEXAS (April 4, 2018) – The Edinburg City Council issued a proclamation to mark the week of April 9-13 as National Boys & Girls Club Week in Edinburg.

National Boys & Girls Club Week showcases Boys & Girls Club as both a vital community-based organization and an active member of a dramatically growing movement. The week will focus on three key outcome areas – academic success, good character and citizenship, and healthy lifestyles.

In Edinburg and its surrounding communities there are eight Boys & Girls Club sites that service more than 18,000 young people.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Edinburg RGV help young people reach their full potential by keeping them off the streets and by offering a safe and supportive place to go while providing quality programs.

The local clubs will join approximately 4,000 clubs and more than two million young people across the country in celebrating National Boys & Girls Club Week.
