Boys & Girls Clubs of Las Vegas has been selected by Ross Stores as a Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) Ross Store Power Hour grant recipient. This innovative partnership between Ross stores and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America allows students a power hour, a place and time to find tutoring, homework assistance and reinforcement of the subjects they learn in school. Power Hour is a BGCA program that implements better study habits and homework support for members 6- 18 years old in a positive interactive setting.

Last night  Tuesday, April 3oth BGCLV hosted our first Ross Power Hour engagement activity at our Donald W. Reynolds Clubhouse, the event was a tremendous success and we look forward to continuing this partnership with our local Ross Stores.
