Healthy Habits

Teaching our Club members how to live a healthy lifestyle is one of three really important priority outcomes here at Boys & Girls Club. Our programs develop young people's capacity to engage in positive behaviors that nurture their own well-being, set personal goals and live successfully as self-sufficient adults. Activities include nutrition, cooking/baking, outdoor and indoor fitness activities and field trips.

Living a healthy lifestyle will help YOU have a better life AND increase your LIFE EXPECTANCY. 

What is LIFE EXPECTANCY anyway? According to, life expectancy is an expected time to live as calculated on the basis of statistical probabilities.

STATISTICAL PROBABILITIES?!?! It is a fancy way of saying a calculation of possible favorable outcomes divided by the total number of all possible outcomes. Someday in college, you might take a WHOLE semester on statistical analysis!
