The mission of The Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina Youth Services is to inspire youth in Indian Country, through cultural enlightenment, to realize their full potential regardless of their circumstances and to become caring, responsible tribal members.
The Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina Boys & Girls Clubs are open to all youth between the ages of 6 to 18 for a nominal membership fee for the school year and the summer session. The club hours during the school year is 2pm-6pm and in the are summer 8:30am-5pm.
Cultural Classes and Enrichment Programs are offered through the Youth Services Department in an effort to preserve, educate, and raise awareness of the history, culture, and traditions of the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina. Cultural classes and enrichment programs are available to individuals who reside in the tribal territories of Cumberland, Hoke, Robeson, and Scotland counties.Youth that participate gain the knowledge and skills needed to participate in the Pow Wow circuit, as dancers and drummers. Youth also learn about traditional Lumbee history, as well as how to make cultural crafts such as jewelry, corn shuck dolls and pinecone patchwork. Elders are encouraged to attend to mold and guide our youth.
The Lumbee Tribe owns and operates seven Boys and Girls Clubs. The locations are listed below. The tribal Boys and Girls Clubs provides a positive place where our youth 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. The Boys and Girls Club offers programs that build self-esteem and develop values and skills during the critical period of growth. 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, and the Boys & Girls Clubs offers 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.
