Boys & Girls Club of Durant
The Boys & Girls Club of Durant provides its members with a variety of programs. Every member takes part in Power Hour offering homework help to every member. The programs offered at the Boys & Girls club have two aspects: social recreation and education. The social recreation programs take place in P.E. and in our social recreation room (game room). Social recreation emphasizes on teaching responsibility, leadership, and teamwork. The education side of our programs include the education room and the cultural enrichment room. Education allows the members to explore things they may not learn about in school. Members learn about different places, people, and things from around the world. Cultural Enrichemnt gives members self expression outlets. They will learn other cultures and apply cultural expression to their own lives.
