Healthy Lifestyles

Boys and Girls Club


Boys & Girls Club of Red River Valley engages youth in positive behaviors that foster well-being. We teach youth to set goals and work to develop skills that will allow them to become healthy, responsible citizens. 

  • Healthy Habits emphasizes good nutrition, regular physical activity and improved overall well-being.

  • SMART Moves is a prevention and education program addressing problems such as drug and alcohol use and premature sexual activity.

  • Passport to Manhood teaches responsibility to boys ages 11 to 14 with sessions that focus on a specific aspect of character and manhood through highly interactive activities.

  • SMART Girls provides health, fitness, prevention/education and self-esteem enhancement for girls ages 8 to 17.

  • Be A STAR is a curriculum focused on social and emotional learning, gives school-aged youth ages the tools they need to drive effective learning, decision making, creativity, relationships and mental health.

  • UPS Road Code is a teen driver safety program. It was developed using the same safety standards and training that UPS uses with its own drivers. The program focuses on core safety principles, from basic instruction to the consequences of risky behaviors such as talking on cell phones, texting or drinking while driving. Driving simulators are utilized to test teens' safe driving knowledge.
