Club Member Testimonials

“The Boys & Girls Club is a great place to come and hang out with friends in your spare time. When coming to the club, you can expect to make wonderful friends and play fun games and interactive activities. My top three areas of choice are the game room, weight room and gym. I can kick back and watch T.V in the game room; play 8 ball, air hockey, ping pong or pop-a-shot, or vibe and listen to music. When coming from school with overwhelming work, the staff members are there to aid you. If you are looking to put on some muscle or drop a few pounds, the weight room is the place to go. When I started in the weight room, I knew I had a great workout from the soreness I felt the next day. In the gym, every sport you can think of is being played; basketball, hockey, football and baseball to name a few. Every time I come to the club I have a great time, even if I’m having a rough day.” -- Melvin, Age 16, Marti Huizenga Boys & Girls Club (Pictured left) 


“I have been coming here for 3 years and I love it.  The Club means a lot to me because all of the staff here are nice and I’ve grown up with them.  Everybody here is like my family and I love them.  Mrs. Michelle is great and I get to go on lots of fieldtrips.  Cheerleading is one of my favorite programs and I also love the Y.E.S. program.  This is the best place to be!  Thank you so much, Boys & Girls Club.”Rylee, age 10, Club member, Florence A. DeGeorge Boys & Girls Club (pictured right)


"My name is Chad. I am 10 years old and I have been going to the Lester H. White Boys & Girls Club for 4 years. I enjoy coming to the Boys & Girls club for many reasons. I like the staff that works at the NFL Lester H. White Boys & Girls Club. My favorite area is the gym, because there are a lot of activities that go on in there that involve running and exercising. I also like participating in all of the Club tournaments, such as, the gamesroom tournament, basketball tournament, and biddy ball tournament. I like to volunteer and help out around the club as well." -- Chad, Age 10, Lester H. White Boys & Girls Club


"The Lauderhill Boys and Girls Club helps me to do my homework if I don’t understand it. Even though I know how to listen, the club makes us listen in case there is a fire or other important safety issues within the club. The Lauderhill Boys and Girls Club  is my favorite place to go!" -- Dante, Age 10, Lauderhill Boys & Girls Club


PAREnt Testimonials

“We moved to Florida 3 years ago and heard about the Boys & Girls Club through a friend.  We joined and haven’t left since.  I absolutely love the impact that this Club has had on my daughter socially, academically, etc.  There is a Club right around the corner from our new home, yet I have chosen to keep my daughter at the DeGeorge Boys & Girls Club.  The staff here is wonderful.  My daughter is always excited after school to come to DeGeorge.  I look forward to the Y.E.S. program, cheerleading, fieldtrips and all of the other wonderful things in store for my daughter at this Club.  Keep up the great work.  You have a member for life!”Minter, Club parent, Florence A. DeGeorge Boys & Girls Club


“The NFL Lester H. White Boys & Girls Club has been a safe, positive environment for my children. They love to attend the club, and do so, daily. The staff has made a great impact and gives their all when working with my two boys and the other youth at their facility. I am currently a volunteer at the NFL Unit, where I love to give back to the kids and the surrounding community. I also enjoy volunteering at the various fundraisers to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County. “A mind is a terrible thing to waste,” so get your child/ren into a Boys & Girls Club of Broward County in your community!” -- Carlene, Club parent, Lester H. White Boys & Girls Club (pictured left)



“Leaving my son at the Boys & Girls Club was one of the hardest choices I’ve had to make as a parent yet, but it turned out to be one of the best choices I’ve made. With staff like Ms. L’erin who is never too busy to answer a question, Ms. Natalie who can always (and I do mean always) know the who, what, when, where and whys of whatever may be going on with my son on any given day, and last but far from least Ms. Morgan who truly cares not only about the quality of the work she does, but she actually makes an effort to personally get to know not only each and every one of the children, but the parents as well. With staff like these monitoring your children on a day-to-day basis, you cannot go wrong.” -- Heather, Club parent, Thomas D. Stephanis Boys & Girls Club


“My Children have been attending the Boys & Girls Club for about 5 years now.  During this time, they have had the opportunity to participate in various activities geared toward aiding in their personal and professional development.  I would highly recommend the Leo Goodwin Teen Center to any parent seeking an after school program.  The Teen Center not only provides a safe place for children to come after school, but also provides the children to interact with their peers and to develop healthy friendships.  Kudos Leo Goodwin Staff!  You Rock!”   -- Tonya, Club Parent, Loe Goodwin Foundation Teen Center


“I am the parent of two girls that attend the Marti Huizenga Boys & Girls Club in Hollywood. I am very satisfied and happy with my girls being there. I love how they help my girls with homework and day to day struggles. They offer many programs such as arts & crafts, the Y.E.S program and their favorite….CHEERLEADING, which is the physical part. I am constantly recommending this club to friends and family. I am very grateful and appreciative to have my girls here.”  Rita, Club parent, Marti Huizenga Boys & Girls Club (Pictured right)
