Youth Employment Program

At the Boys & Girls Club of Freeport & Stephenson County we believe that it is vital to the well-being of our community that teenagers are prepared to enter the work force. It benefits us as a community to invest the time and effort to help young people gain the experiences needed to be successful in the transition.
