“This is the next generation of leaders for our country …” -John Barry, President and CEO of The Boys and Girls Club of Metro Denver
Writing for the Soul Workshop™ was first labeled an Academic Success Program by the Boys & Girls Club Musgrave Unit in Springfield, Missouri. Character development has been the cornerstone of the Boys & Girls Club experience since the first Club opened in 1860. The first Club professional, John Collins, devised a system of informal guidance to attract boys into the Club, capture their interest, improve their behavior and increase their personal expectations and goals.
The procedures Collins used constituted a clearly planned, socially scientific system of taking boys off the street and promoting their development towards a successful, productive future. This system formed the basis of the Boys & Girls Club environment. It is still in use today with proven results.
After piloting Writing for the Soul Workshop™ at the Musgrave Unit in Springfield, the city’s mayor had this to say, “Every community needs a program like this.” -Mayor Robert Stephens, City of Springfield
