Richland County Relives Childhood At Boys & Girls Club Day For Kids

Special Event Encourages Adults to Spend Meaningful Time with Kids, Proving That One Day Can Change a Child’s Future

 


Boys & Girls Club of Richland County is gearing up to celebrate its annual Day for Kids event to highlight the critical needs of kids and teens in the community. Day for Kids celebrates the life changing work taking place at Boys & Girls Clubs each day by encouraging adults to spend meaningful time with young people and engage in fun and active play

This year’s Day for Kids will be celebrated with a large number of parents and kids participating in an event at Central Elementary School gym Sept. 19 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Boys & Girls Clubs of Richland County is one of hundreds of Day for Kids events planned nationwide (all events are open to the public).

Day for Kids aligns with Boys & Girls Club of Richland County’s overall initiative to help kids and teens become more actively engaged in their community, live a healthy lifestyle and achieve academic success. The ‘play’ incorporated in the Day for Kids event fosters creativity, imagination, exploration and helps kids develop and master various skills.

“At the Club we change the opportunity equation for kids in our community, enabling them to achieve a greater future,” says Michele Seadeek, Boys & Girls Club of Richland County development director. “Day for Kids is a fun way for not only adults to relive their childhood, but for kids to have fun and foster stronger relationships with caring mentors. Day for Kids is just one example of the amazing work we do each day to enable kids and teens to reach their full potential by staying on track to graduate, demonstrating good character and citizenship and practicing healthy lifestyles.”

Day for Kids is also part of Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s Great Futures Campaign. The Great Futures Campaign aims to redefine the opportunity equation for America’s kids and call attention to the critical role of out-of-school time in reversing the negative trends facing today’s youth. A year-round web site, http://www.dayforkids.org, provides tools, resources and tips that support their interactions with young people.

Located at 200 3rd Ave. SE, Sidney, the Club provides program opportunities for over 150 boys and girls each year.
