Description

In California, 19.3% of children - around 1.7 million - are living in poverty and do not have access to quality education and life-changing opportunities. Quality education and opportunities must be provided to children in order to break generational cycles of poverty and enable them to reach their full potential. The Boys and Girls Clubs of Carson’s Character and Citizenship Programs help disadvantaged children develop leadership, planning and decision making skills through public speaking, leadership conferences and peer-to-peer council elections.

Importance Importance

Disadvantaged children require support, compassion and guidance in order to break the cycle of poverty, improve their academic performance and self-confidence and pave the way for a great future. This impact has a domino effect because it transforms families, communities and future generations and allows more and more people to be self-sufficient and successful. Education is the solution to poverty.
