Boys and Girls Club - Teichert Branch
The Teichert Branch of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Sacramento opened its doors in January of 2004 to hundreds of eager children in South Sacramento. Located on Lemon Hill Avenue off Stockton Boulevard near Fruitridge Road, the club welcomes 400+ children each day to study, play games, create art projects, and make new friends in a positive environment.
Complete with an arts and crafts room, computer lab, quiet study areas, TV room, café, dining hall, full-size gymnasium, game room, a health and life skills room, and a soccer field, the 32,000 square foot facility sits on 4.5 acres.
Students using the club must first complete 60-90 minutes of studying prior to socializing or playing. A healthy, hot meal is served daily.
The fees do not cover costs, so the club is dependent on community support from citizens, businesses, and other organizations.
