5 Reasons Why I Love Being a Club Kid

My name is Shadiamond and I’m ten years old. I’ve been a member of Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeastern Michigan since I was six.

Every day after school, I walk to the Dick & Sandy Dauch Club where I can get help with my homework and do cool activities with my friends. Coming to the Clubs is fun! If you have a Club near you, I think you should join.

Here are 5 Reasons Why I Love Being a Club Kid:

1.Content Club

I am a member of the Content Club and we are learning how to do media for our Club. Every Thursday, Ms. Devon teaches us something new. We have learned how to run the @bgcsem Instagram page, Ms. Ebony taught us how to write a blog, and Mr. Jerome & Mr. Dave taught us how to use a professional camera. Next, we’re going to learn how to make videos.

2. Drawing

My favorite hobby is drawing and they encourage me to do it at the Club. Sometimes I sketch for my friends and I draw all kinds of different things at the Club.

This summer, I got to draw outfits when Mrs. Jamita came in for the Fashion Mogul Challenge.

3. Support

The Staff is always there to greet us after school. Mr. Chris is nice and we always have fun with Ms. Jenée.

Even if you just want to talk about your day at school or if you have a problem, you can always talk to someone at the Club. They will listen and help.

4. Cool Programs  

If I have a questions on my homework, I can always get help and when I’m finished I can play computer games in the gaming room, do yoga stretches in the Self Care Space, or even learn how to DJ in the Sean Anderson Foundation Studio.

5. Activities

If you like basketball, dodgeball, or four-square, there are a lot of athletic activities you can do at the Club.

I love my Club because there’s something there for kids of all ages.
