The Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada is a nonprofit that services over 20,000 kids a year. They provide a safe environment for kids and have hundreds of activities that they can take part in. These activities include basketball, soccer and even provide meals.
Their daily attendance is over 2,500 kids at 14 different clubhouse locations.  
They have before school and after school programs, track break programs and an awesome summer program that keeps youth active and off the street while school is out.
One of the major focuses across the Boys & Girls Club nation is to create as many opportunities for teens in Southern Nevada.
These fireworks booths open those avenues for teens to see opportunities outside of their communities.
Youth that attend BGCSN may not have the resources to visit prospective colleges and universities, or take memorable trips that will last a lifetime.
BGCSN believes that every child should have an opportunity to further their education, and reach for the stars.
