A safe place for kids to hang-out in Las Cruces

April 26, 2019

The Boys & Girls Club of Las Cruces has partnered with the Paso del Norte Health Foundation’s IGNITE Initiative to engage disconnected youth in out-of-school programs such as Teen Night.

Teen Night is available to middle and high school students in the community every Friday. This allows students to spend time with friends in a safe environment and help them avoid risky behaviors like vaping, alcohol and drug use or being involved in criminal activity. Support from the IGNITE Initiative has allowed for the hiring of additional staffing and mentors to expand these programs at the Club.
