Boys and Girls Club helps local children develop academic, atheltic skills

El Paso News

The El Paso Boys and Girls Club continues to help Borderland kids tap into their academic, athletic, and character development.

“The boys and girls club is a great organization. We really are changing lives every day for the children that we serve.” CEO Anthony Tomasheski tells KTSM.”It’s important to us that every child in our community have a place to grow and feel safe after school, and that’s why we’re here.”

The organization welcomes kids from age six to eighteen, and offer after school activies for the children to keep engaged with. 

Volunteers donate their time to help serve the children, whether it be helping with homework or keeping them involved with physical activity. 

“There’s a place where you do homework and you do projects on the computer about learning.” 8th grader Martin Galan explains.  

“Or some other thing that is educational and then we eat, then we have homework time where if anyone has homework we go to some tables and do homework.” 5th grader Nathan Rivera adds.

There are four Boys and Girls clubs around town. All are open and accept any donations, volunteers, and support. 

“I really urge you and ask you, on behalf of all the kids to come down. Volunteer. Participate in our clubs.” Tomasheski says. 

The kids who already attend the Boys and Girls Club also invite their peers to come and join.

“I am going to continue being here because it is a fun place and you do make lots of friends,” Rivera said.
