Triple Play/Healthy Lifestyles: Yoga
- The Club has implemented Yoga as a part of our Triple Play programming. Triple Play is a health and wellness program which strives to improve the overall health of club members. We have found Yoga to be beneficial when members begin their day with the calming exercises, is an effective tool in behavior management, and offers an exercise alternative to competive or aggressive forms.
- "Through the yoga, I learned new ways to relieve my stress." ~Kat Bivins, BGCEC 2012 Youth of the Year & Top 4 Youth of Year State Finalist
Youth for Unity & Character Counts: Summer Community Service Projects
- In conjunction with two national BGC programs, Youth for Unity and Character Counts, the Pensacola Club has designated the third week of each of the summer months to Community Service. Members 5 through 18 participate in a community service effort. Members are encouraged to elect service projects that are of particular interest, have personal meaning, and or is pertinent to causes within community. Our motto is "it's never too early to orientate a child to the benefits of civic engagement."
- Recent Community Service Projects:
- "It feels good to know we are making a difference. When I grow up I want to help people now." ~Club Member
