Teens & Young Adults
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Lansing is committed to serving teens and young adults with programs geared towards their needs and interests.
In 2016 Jackson National Life Insurance Company donated $683,000 to build a 4,689-square foot state of the art addition to the Boys & Girls Club of Lansing just for TEENS! The Jackson Teen Zone provides tutoring and educational space for the 1,500 at-risk teenagers who visit the center to prepare for college. At the center, members can take part in a multitude of programs that include character & leadership, financial literacy, and career development.
Money Matters promotes financial responsibility and independence among Club members ages 13 to 18. Participants learn how to manage a checking account, create a budget, save and invest, start small businesses and pay for college.
