Lumbee Tribe Boys & Girls Clubs

Mission Statement: To inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.

A Boys & Girls in Indian Country Provides A Positive Place Where Native American Young People Can Go...

  • To celebrate their culture and community...

  • To enjoy healthy fun with their peers...

  • And to learn new skills and self confidence under the guidance of responsible adults.

The Boys & Girls Club of the Lumbee Tribe is a youth guidance organization dedicated to promoting the educational, vocational, social and character development of girls and boys ages 6 to 18. Striving to help youth improve their lives, the Club offers programs that build self-esteem and develop values and skills during the critical period of growth. Members come to the club looking for fun and a sense of belonging. Not only do they meet new friends, but they also learn and develop new skills that will benefit them for a lifetime. The Boys & Girls Club has a core of career professionals who are trained to provide leadership through informal guidance using individual assistance, small group, and drop-in activities.In every community, boys and girls are left to find their own recreation and companionship in the streets. An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision. Young people need to know that someone cares about them.Boys & Girls Clubs offer that and more. Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence. Boys & Girls Clubs are a safe place to learn and grow – all while having fun. They are truly The Positive Place For Kids.

Lumbee Boys & Girl Club Programs

Helping youth become responsible, caring citizens and acquire skills for participating in the democratic process is the main thrust of these programs. They also develop leadership skills and provide opportunities for planning, decision-making, contributing to Club and community and celebrating our national heritage.


Keystone Clubs
Keystone Clubs are chartered small group leadership development clubs for young people ages 14 to 18. Keystoners elect officers, choose their own activities and plan and implement community service projects. A national charter entitles a Keystone Club to participate in regional and national Keystone conferences. This teen leadership program is funded by the Taco Bell Foundation

Torch Club
This small-group leadership development program, sponsored by Staples, is targeted to youth ages 11 to 13. Within some 1400 Torch Clubs across the country, members elect officers and plan and implement their own activities and community service projects. Each Torch Club receives an official charter from Boys & Girls Clubs of America

Club Tech

Several years ago Microsoft generously invested in Boys & Girls Clubs to create Club Tech, a national program that makes technology, software and training accessible in Clubs. In 2007, Best Buy Children’s Foundation joined forces with Microsoft and BGCA to help equip millions of America’s youth with vital skills and experiences to successfully compete academically and prepare for a 21st century workforce



The SMART Moves (Skills Mastery and Resistance Training) prevention/education program addresses problems such as drug and alcohol use and premature sexual activity. The program uses a team approach involving Club staff, peer leaders, parents and community representatives. More than simply emphasizing a "Say No" message, the program teaches young people ages 6 to15 how to say no by involving them in discussion and role-playing, practicing resistance and refusal skills, developing assertiveness, strengthening decision-making skills and analyzing media and peer influence. The ultimate goal: to promote abstinence from substance abuse and adolescent sexual involvement through the practice of responsible behavior.

An outgrowth of the popular and effective SMART Moves program, SMART Girls is a health, fitness, prevention/education and self-esteem enhancement program for girls ages 8 to17. The program is designed to encourage healthy attitudes and lifestyles that will enable early adolescent girls to develop to their full potential. The SMART Girls program is sponsored by Tupperware Brands Corporation. Learn more about SMART Girls.

Passport to Manhood
Passport to Manhood promotes and teaches responsibility while reinforcing positive behavior in male Club members ages 11 to14. Passport to Manhood consists of 14 small-group sessions, each of which concentrates on a specific aspect of manhood through highly interactive activities. Each participant is issued his own "Passport" to underscore the idea that he is on a journey of maturation and personal growth.

Money Matters: Make It Count
Created with the Charles Schwab Foundation, this financial literacy program was designed specifically to help teens (ages 13 to18) expand their knowledge of money management and learn the skills that lead to financial independence and well-being. The Money Matters: Make It Count program consists of five components: Teen Personal Finance Guide, Program Facilitator's Guide, Money Matters Web site, Schwab Employee Volunteer Program and the Money Matters Awards. Via the volunteer component, Schwab employees can pass financial expertise to Club teens through their volunteer involvement.

Inactive Module

You should publish modules to the "inactive" position and set the Menus to "All", for them to show up on pages where there is no active menu ID. This is a bug/feature of Joomla that causes only menu items in the "All" setting to show up.
