The Mission of the Boys and Girls Club is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

The Boys and Girls Club of the Leech Lake Area serves over 950 youth (ages 6-18) during after-school and summer hours. Our Club members come from three Northern Minnesota communities: Cass Lake, Walker, and Deer River. 

We pride ourselves on creating once in a lifetime opportunities for our youth that they would not find elsewhere. We offer a variety of programs aimed at enhancing the lives of our members, from getting  homework help, to building character and leadership skills, to participating in fun activities in the gym. Boys and Girls Clubs are a safe place to learn and grow – all while having fun. Great futures start here each and every day.

-The Boys and Girls Club of the Leech Lake Area is now recruiting for two summer VISTA positions for the 2015 year! The VISTA will be working in a direct-service role with Club kids in Cass Lake to help battle summer learning loss. Our Club members need opportunities to continue learning and practicing essential skills (especially reading and math) over the crucial months where learning typically takes a back seat, and we need your help to do it! 
The VISTA service period will take place from Monday, June 8th through Sunday, August 2nd. A monthly living allowance for housing and meals will be provided, and a monetary reward will be provided at the end of service in the amount of $250 cash or a $1,212.44 educational award. This is a great opportunity to spend the summer with really fun kids in a beautiful lake community, give back, build up your resume, and earn some money to pay off those loans!
