The Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Minnesota's KIDSTOP provides a way for parents to give their kids a quality after-school experience at an affordable price. KIDSTOP gives kids daily opportunities that parents know are vital for their child's healthy growth. Such opportunities include quality staff who provide homework help to members. KIDSTOP kids can also choose to get involved in sports leagues with interclub tournaments. Children can hone their creative talents with KIDSTOP's art programming, which includes daily crafts activities, as well as beginner's dance and theatre. All of these services stem from the Boys & Girls Club's five core program areas:
- Character & Leadership Development
- Education and Career Development
- Health & Life Skills
- The Arts
- Sports, Fitness & Recreation
KIDSTOP is offered at 13 area schools immediately after school ends until 6 p.m. The program is also offered during some school holidays and during the summer. Scholarships and county assistance are available to families having financial difficulty. The Boys & Girls Club is committed to making sure that ALL children are entitled to quality after-school care, because the children of Central Minnesota deserve to continue to have a positive place to stay after school -- a place that is convenient for parents and fun for kids. Parents only pay for KIDSTOP on the days their child actually attends. The Boys & Girls Club has a KIDSTOP scholarship program available to families who are financially unable to pay.
