About this grant

This renewal grant provides general purpose support to the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Flint Focusing on education, creativity, physical activity and health, and family support services, the Boys & Girls Club of Flint offers year-round programming to all young people in the Flint area between the ages of 7 and 17 at the Averill Avenue location. Programs such as this are particularly necessary in Flint given its current water crisis because educational and enrichment opportunities are important interventions for individuals from birth to young adulthood to help mitigate the long-term impacts of exposure to lead.
