Club Attendance Impacts Lives
Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s research shows that young people who attend a Club regularly tend to do better than their peers nationally.
- 90% of Club 9th graders report abstaining from drinking alcohol in the past 30 days, compared with 77% of ninth graders nationally
31% of Club girls ages 12 to 15 are physically active every day, compared with 23% of girls in the same age range nationally.
A comparison of NYOI and National Survey on Drug Use and Health data suggests that regularly attending Club members ages 12 to 17 outperform their peers nationally on school grades. About 75% of these Club Members report earning mostly A's and B's in school, compared with 67% of youth nationally.
