Dare 2 Soar Community Partners

Dare 2 Soar tutors volunteer at several different tutoring sites or programs. Each site is unique, and as such we are able to better serve not only the community's needs, but also the interests and schedules of our tutors. The following is a brief overview of each of the sites we work with in Chester.

Boys and Girls Club

The Club serves boys and girls ranging from 6-18 years of age. The largest age group that it serves is in the age range of 10-14 years and they generally accommodate approximately 90 to 100 faces daily. The mission of the BGCC is to nurture the development of Chester youth and guide them along the path to future success by providing an environment that supports excellence in education, good character and citizenship, and a healthy lifestyle.
