Healthy Lifestyles

Healthy Lifestyles & Arts
The Boys & Girls Club of Erie County's Healthy Lifestyles programs encourage our members to adopt a healthy diet, practice positive lifestyle choices and make a lifelong commitment to fitness.

Our Philosophy
  • Promotes the importance of leading a healthy and productive lifestyle
  • Encourages positive decision-making for physical, social and emotional development
  • Teaches good sportsmanship
  • Teaches social and interpersonal skills
  • Educates members and their families on the importance of life-long healthy decision-making and behaviors
