Boys & Girls Clubs of El Camino Reál* has committed to providing youth ages 6 to 18 with a tangible measure of hope. We offer the children lessons of leadership, guidance, and direction that is so often lacking in their lives. Our trained professional staff members respect and listen to the Club members we serve. We provide a safe environment where children can have fun and be themselves. Our activities are structured and interesting…channeling a child’s youthful energy into challenging pursuits.
*Name changed to “of Natchitoches” in 2008.
Possible political connections
Usually, a NGO must have the approval of the leges in whose districts the organization is located to be funded. The organization is in Rep. KENNY COX and Sen. GERALD LONG’s districts. Check with the leges for more information.
One can only assume that the leges would not have appropriated the funds for the organization unless its needs were a higher priority than the state colleges and universities which had their funding reduced and student tuition was raised.
Anyone who thinks that funding the organization is not a higher priority than our state colleges and universities, please forward this to your leges for an explanation of their priorities because I can’t explain it.
