BGCSM Club Member, Raina Shares Why She Thinks Every Kid Should Join A Club

My name is Raina. I’m eleven years old and I’ve been a member of Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeastern Michigan for a year.

If you have a Club in your neighborhood, I think you should join because there is so much you can do.

Every day after school, I come to the Dick & Sandy Dauch Club where I can see my close friends. We always have fun with Mr. Joe and Ms. Jenée. I feel safe in the Club surrounded by staff members.

At the Club, I get to talk with my friends and watch them play foursquare, dodge-ball, and basketball in the gym.

Since the weather is warm, we can go outside and play.

At the Club, there is always good food, fun events, and lots of games to play.

On Thursdays, Ms. Devon teaches Content Club where we learn how to do social media, write a blog, and shoot photography. This summer we’ll be graduating as junior UCS Content Creators!

During the school year, you can come to the Club and work on the computer or get help with your homework.

This summer, I get to work as an intern, and I can’t wait for more fun events like the time I got a chance to meet Big Sean!
