The Boys and Girls Club of Rochester joined Boys and Girls Clubs across the country and opened its doors to the public Thursday.
Visitors learned about programs at the club and how it encourages youth to succeed. They even got to participate in activities with the youth.
Staff at the Boys and Girls Club say their main goal is to provide a safe place for kids.
Cara Cupolo, Executive Assistant, said, "For working families, we provide time for kids to get homework help, we provide meals. For kids, whose parents are working late, a place for them to go after school."
This week is National Boys and Girls Club Week. If you are interested in signing up your child, you can call the Rochester location to set up a tour. The number is 328-3077. Children between the ages of five-years-old and 18-years-old are eligible.
