The Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Texas exists to enable ALL YOUTH, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as caring, productive, responsible citizens.
At every Club, for every Kid, every day, we show up to do whatever it takes to ensure that our youth can achieve a Great Future.
We serve over 4000 youth across Northeast Texas every single year, and behind every number there is a face or name of a kid or teen whose life we have transformed, changed, or saved.
Our weekly photo contest allows us to spotlight a few of those faces and names and gain a glimpse into the life changing work performed by our Youth Development Professionals and Club Directors every single day.
Weekly Photo Contest for week ending May 17th, 2019.
Below are the photo and caption submissions for each Club Site listed in alphabetical order.
