Welcome to the Boys and Girls Club of Benton and Franklin Counties
Brighter Horizons celebrated National Boys & Girls Club Week by highlighting the wonderful programs our club has to offer and how it impacts the lives of our youth and their children every day. Our children engaged in fun activities each day with our staff and student helpers. We had 11 of our teen parents, Principal, Christy Rasmussen and Teen Parenting teacher, Jackie Brewster joined us on Friday during lunch to play with the children outside in fun activities, like the parachute play, dancing with children and musical candy walk.
Here is a sneak peak at two beautiful teen mom's with their precious children, that will be featured on next year's Pasco School District calendar!
Brighter Horizons has many talented students! They wrote an article about "Why they love Pasco Schools". I would tell you more.... but I have to save some for later.
Brenna is a member of the Prosser branch. She is the first State Youth of the Year for our organization, and the first for Eastern Washington.
As the winner, she earned a $2,500 scholarship and will travel to Los Angeles for a week this summer to represent our state at the regional competition.
Torch Club members from our Main Branch Unit went to Wade Park on Wendnesday to participate in a community clean up. The members had fun helping out our community by making sure that the park was clean and taken care of.
National Boys & Girls Club week is a time to have some extra special fun! What says fun more than tons of balloons filled with prizes! The kids had a great time popping the balloons to find a special prize just for them.
Four Teen Center Keystone members attended the National Keystone Conference March 22nd-25th in Dallas, TX. In addition to attending sessions throughout the day to help them understand how to better themselves and the club, the teens also got to hear from Keri Hilson and Miguel, two famous R&B singers who shared their motivational stories with the Keystoners.
