A Program for Success

Girls are referred to The Friendship Club by school teachers and counselors, social workers and community members. Girls who join the club come from a variety of challenging backgrounds, but they are all interested in making the most of their futures and want to receive guidance and support in pursuit of their goals.

The Friendship Club provides a comprehensive, year-round program aimed at developing the whole girl. Not just the academic, social, responsible, or creative part of the girl, but all of those.  This is done through an after school program, summer enrichment program, field trips, tutoring, and mentoring. Volunteers are recruited to help support these activities as drivers, snack helpers, chaperones, guest speakers, tutors and mentors.

The most important thing The Friendship Club did was to give me hope when I felt hopeless. You have turned my life around.  – Friendship Club Girl
