The Jane and Finch Boys and Girls Club has been one of the most welcoming places for any youth to come to. Growing up through the Boys and Girls Club was a true blessing. As part of the Club I went to summer camps, participating in trips, got help with homework and even asked for advice from the leaders there. My experience at the Boys and Girls Club has been utterly remarkable. I’ve been taught several life lessons and created a relationship with the staff where I am comfortable to speak about anything. The Club helps you learn new interests/hobbies and they help you learn about yourself. They have also opened our eyes to a different taste of life. If it wasn’t for the Boys and Girls Club I don’t think I would be on the right path to be shaped into the man that I am today. As one of the youth in the community I can honestly say that this program is life saving.
