A Home Away From Home

The Boys & Girls Club experience is life-changing for many kids. When “school is out,” the “Club is in.”

​80% of this nonprofit’s budget comes from the community. Your gift ensures access to a safe place, caring mentors and opportunities for growth.

The Club also offers many volunteer programs where you will gain great experiences working with children and get a chance to make a difference in your community. There is a place for everyone at the Club through many of its wonderful programs aiming to help the Boys & Girls of our community realize their full potential as caring, responsible and unique citizens. Come share your talents, kindness and knowledge. Below are opportunities the Club currently has for volunteers.

Afterschool Program Volunteer:  Work with kids in one or more of many afterschool programs. Arts and crafts or playing in the gym are just some of the many opportunities! Commitment of two hours a week for aperiod of at least three months is required.

    I am writing in response to Mr. Hoxworth’s article on transportation costs for the poor in Vermont. I would like to suggest further research on this topic before we simply just give another handout or tax credit. The poor, may, have a higher disproportionate burden on their transportation costs than the wealthier residents of Vermont; however, they also have a lower disproportionate burden on taxes and housing. Pick your evil.
    We can simply just give every poor Vermonter an energy efficient car, gas card, free tuition, renter’s rebate, etc.…but the only way out of poverty is through the combination of education, hard work, and discipline. Education and degrees are not handed out or purchased; a person has to EARN them. This seems to be the only way out of poverty—sorry, there are no shortcuts.
    If we continue this trend of enabling, our entire state will be a welfare state.
