Located at the Kerby Belt Building, the Illinois Valley branch of Boys & Girls Clubs of the Rogue Valley serves youth through after-school and summer programs for kids and teens, team sports, community outreach and family engagement. All youth receive meals and snacks during program times, along with free busing afterschool from Evergreen Elementary and Lorna Byrne Middle School. Quality programs are specially designed to be FUN and engaging, while encouraging academic success, promoting healthy lifestyles and modeling good character and citizenship. Teen Nights and family engagement programs provide additional meals and activities in the evenings.
Mission: To provide year-round positive, fun and safe places for all youth, helping them to build self-esteem and develop skills necessary to make right choices, becoming responsible and productive citizens.
