“The Club has a unique way of addressing, through programs and activities, the importance of school and the development of life skills. These daily reminders became key aspects in my childhood. They would become the root to the determination I have towards my studies. The Club taught me to always emphasize fun in learning, and to focus on academics. I have learned to be a confident leader, destined for a great future.” – Teen Member and Boys & Girls Clubs of America 2016 RI Youth of the Year, Cesar Pimental
