Great Futures Boys and Girls Club BBQ
Boys & Girls Club of Highlands County
The Boys & Girls Club of Highlands County has reached out to our local providers of emergency services and other agencies that serve an essential function to our area. (The Highlands County Sheriff’s Office, the Emergency Services Commander, as well as both hospital ERs.) We have invited the children of these Essential workers, to come to the club locations in Avon Park and Sebring, for tutoring and mentoring during the days of school closures. This offer provides a safe space for children to stay for a couple hours, giving their parents and opportunity to go to the grocery store or to run errands. Those interested may contact our Site Directors to set up appointments to work with kids either one-on-one, on-site or via video or telephone chat.
While many families daily schedules have been disrupted, the Boys & Girls Club in Highlands County wants to be a safe and positive place that’s stayed steady for families in our area. We are available for those who are members and also those who are working so diligently to keep us all safe. “
The Boys & Girls Club of Highlands County provides after-school and summer programs for hundreds of area youth ages 6-12 at two Club locations.
Programs are designed to help youth excel in school, become leaders, live healthy lifestyles and create plans for success after high school graduation.
Our Clubs are proud to be 21st Century Community Learning Centers, and provide youth with opportunities for
Academic Enrichment, including tutorial services to help students, particularly students who attend low performing
schools to meet state academic standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and mathematics.
