Each year, the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Nashua helps approximately 30 current and former members entering or continuing higher education to realize their dreams of earning a college degree.
This event, held at the Clubhouse at One Positive Place, is a time of celebration. Thanks to endowed scholarship funds and local resources, the Club is able to award over $40,000 in scholarship to members and alumni attending college, universities and technical schools.
The Club reinforces academic success and encourages all Club members to graduate from high school and pursue additional education and career opportunities. Through a variety of programs, the Club prepares teens to explore higher education through activities like the College Preparation program. This event provides a unique opportunity for current and former Club members to come together to celebrate all that they have achieved, as well as everything they are planning to pursue in the future.
Sponsors of this event directly support the Club’s Academic and College Preparation programs, by offering a venue for our members to meet with current college students, like themselves, as well as provide a format for current success to be recognized and fostered.
