A Chat with Boys & Girls Club
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Westfield has been enabling young people to dream big and achieve their goals for the past 46 years. Our caring staff provides our members with homework help, recreational activities, daily swimming, technology programs, a hot dinner every night, and much, much more.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Boys & Girls Clubs exist to fulfill the age-old desire of all young people to have a club of their own. We believe that children deserve access to adults that will listen to them in a safe place where they are accepted.
What do you love most about your job?
At the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Westfield we love to see young people learn, grow, and succeed. We run nationally-recognized, research-based programs that help kids discover their passions, overcome academic obstacles and become lifelong learners.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
One of our Kidz Klub members was having a difficult time grasping spelling and phonics. After participating in our Wilson Fundations program, she was able to progress to the next grade on time. Her parents were so thankful that we were able to provide the one-to-one support their daughter needed.
