Description

2015 Honor Award for Health and Life Skills James L. McKeown Boys & Girls Club of Woburn, Inc. This organization’s partnership with local schools has given young children needed guidance and helped teens develop leadership skills. Before the Bell arose from the need to offer supervision and enrichment opportunities to children unsupervised before school. This organization decided to use high school students as mentors and roles models. The mentors promote healthy lifestyles by leading children in 140 minutes of physical activity per week, and eating a healthy breakfast with them each day. It has also helped bring teens to the Club.
