Role Calls for Boys & Girls Clubs
D'Allesandro, Lou
New England Journal of Higher Education, Jan 2013
The New Hampshire Alliance of Boys & Girls Clubs has come a long way since the inception of the state's first Club in Manchester more than 100 years ago. The goal of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America is to provide youth with programs and services that allow them to realize their full potential as productive members of society. State and federal funding continues to be the main challenge to Clubs in New Hampshire. In response to this challenge, several Clubs have spearheaded the postsecondary education initiative by informally guiding members through their own locally designed programming such as: (1) College Mentoring Program; (2) Collegiate Tours; (3) Career Exploration & Career Launch; and (4) diplomas to Degrees.
