Day for Kids


2017  

Day for Kids is a national day of celebration that invites adults to join Boys & Girls Clubs all over the world in making a difference for kids in their community. For more than a decade, adults and kids alike have participated in Day for Kids events as a way to advocate for youth. Day for Kids is a celebration of the life-changing work taking place at Boys & Girls Clubs across the nation, and a reminder that one day can change a child’s future.
