Organization Name
Boys & Girls Club of Greater Houston—Communications Internship

601 Sawyer, Ste.700
Houston, Texas 77007

Organization Description

 In every community, boys and girls are left to find their own recreation and companionship in the streets.  An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision.  Young people need to know that someone cares about them.

Boys & Girls Clubs offer that and more.  Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence.

Boys & Girls Clubs are safe places to learn and grow.
