Smyrna, DE 19977
The Greater Smyrna Clayton Boys & Girls Club is located at 240 E. Commerce Street in Smyrna, DE. We have been proudly serving our local community for over 10 years. Our doors have been open since 1999, but operating as a licensed childcare center since September 2005 under the executive leadership of Trisha Moses. In 2012, the Club became a proud participant of Delaware Stars for Early Success.
The Greater Smyrna Clayton Boys & Girls Club is part of a nationwide movement whose mission is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those from disadvantage circumstances, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens.
The purpose of our Club is to guide young people in making appropriate and satisfying decisions toward their physical, educational, social, emotional, vocational and personal lives.
The Boys & Girls Club attempts to instill in each member:
A sense of Competence - the feeling there is something youth can do and do well
A sense of Usefulness - the opportunity to do something of value for other people
A sense of Power or Influence - a chance to be heard and to influence decisions
A sense of Belonging - a setting where an individual knows he or she has a place and is accepted
