In Mexico, 21 out of every 100 students will finish college. In Nuevo León 7 out of 10 students desert, this decision means that these young people abandon the most certain path towards a better future, they give up almost all possibility of getting a formal, steady and well paid job. As their employment opportunities are reduced, young people who drop out are more vulnerable to becoming involved in criminal activities. While the cost of dropping out of school is not only incurred by those who make the decision to do so, it has negative implications for society as a whole: reducing productivity and thus the rate of long-term economic growth. In addition, school dropout is highly regressive as it is concentrated among lower-income youth, reproducing, generation after generation, income inequality and poverty.


The project at The Boys and Girls Club of Nuevo Leon, ABP, has 4 components developed in accordance with the basic principle of human rights set out in the General Law on the Rights of Children and Adolescents.

  • Healthy and safe contexts: innovative, safe, functional space that meets the development needs of NNA.
  • Conditions of well-being and integral development: extracurricular activities that reduce the risk of street.
  • Development and participation: strengthening leadership skills, decision making, problem solving and increasing scho, ol performance
  • School continuity: create a culture of permanence in the educational system until reaching a personal and social development suitable to their professional expectatio.

764 childrens, adolescents and young people from 4 to 20 years old they have benefited.

  • 80% of childrens, adolescents and young people acquired formal reasoning skills to solve number-related problems
  • 80% of childrens, adolescents and young people produce narrative texts with correct use of semicolons, commas and question marks and/or exclamation marks.
  • 80% of childrens, adolescents and young people developed artistic skills and abilities by participating in painting, music, dance and craft workshops.
  • 80% of children developed skills to develop positive relationships, make responsible decisions, and define and achieve personal goals.

Today, more than ever, Mexico requires great efforts to make strong its social structure, because it is the way to take care of the root problems that our country face. The Boys and Girls Club of Nuevo Leon, ABP will be prepared to accelerate the efforts, and in that way, we will keep supporting through a social and professional investment for a better Mexico.

The global pandemic caused by the COVID-19 virus that affect most Mexican states that has caused immeasurable disruption to the lives, learning and wellbeing of children.

 

The Club de Niños y Niñas de Nuevo León is working to keep children, particularly the most marginalized, learning.

 

The Club en tu casa revolves around four main topics: Education, Arts, Sports and Human development, all of which combine to create a program aiming at forming better and successful human beings within a community with high levels of poverty.

 

In Education

- Every day we continue to reinforce what kids learning.

- 11 Club members took the High School admission test this year

- Congratulations to Abigail, who was granted with a scholarship to study the BSc International Relations at one of the the world´s top universities, Tecnológico de Monterrey.

 

In Sports:

We understand the role sports play in this pandemia, so Club de Niños y Niñas de Nuevo Leon can offer them a selection of basketball, volleyball, handball, Olympic an rhythmic gymnastics, martial arts, box and many more virtually.

 

In Arts:

We have witnessed how even the most introverted teenager can express the widest range of emotions trough art.

 

In Human Development

Projects like “Cleaning your way” and “Care of water” help kids gain conscience of both their role as responsible member of the community and the positive impact that caring about the environment has on their lives.

The core of this Club revolves around four main topics: Education, Arts, Sports and Human development, all of which combine to create a program aiming at forming better and successful human beings within a community with high levels of poverty and poor familiar support. These children are not homeless, but they are in need of support during after-school hours because most of the time one or both parents are absent because of long working hours, otherwise they are extremely vulnerable to such risks as delinquency, gang-related violence, drug use, prostitution, teen pregnancy and school dropout.

This last problem has been identified as one of the most important issues to fight, since studies such as the one conducted by Louis Harris & Associates in the United States came up with an overview where as many as 73% of Club members questioned identified academic tutoring as the most valuable benefit they obtained from their Club. In Mexico, a country where 6.5% of the population cannot read nor write (and an even higher percentage faces functional illiteracy), Education can be signaled as the utmost essential field on which to invest.

Our accomplishments

With over 800 enrolled members to this day, the Club is constantly researching about new programs that can help both members and staff achieve the Club´s mission of changing these kids´ lives, and some of the accomplishments so far are:

In Education
Living in a community where most citizens hardly attend past elementary school can be difficult, but aiding these kids with their school homework is not only a matter of bringing their grades up, we´re talking about helping young boys and girls become the men and women that will compete for better jobs tomorrow, and who will become active members of the society, thus increasing the potential growth of the local economy.

In Sports:
Having some of our members improving their self-esteem and physical condition practicing sports may be positive, but having them succeeding in local handball, basketball and soccer tournaments is even better!
We understand the role sports play in helping kids improve their health and sense of being part of a team, so Club de Niños y Niñas de Nuevo Leon can offer them a selection of basketball, volleyball, handball, Olympic an rhythmic gymnastics, martial arts, box and many more.

In Arts:
We have witnessed how even the most introverted teenager can express the widest range of emotions trough art. At the Club they can practice painting, dance, photography, music, arts and crafts and we can see the results of such cultural immersion in projects like “La Pintureria” or “Walls speak telling stories”, where they can paint not only on a canvas but on the walls of their very own streets, a project that has received recognition by the municipal government and CONARTE and CONACULTA arts councils.

In Human Development
Projects like “Cleaning your way” and “Care of water” help kids gain conscience of both their role as responsible member of the community and the positive impact that caring about the environment has on their lives, but a solid development program wouldn´t be complete without facing issues like drug use prevention and sexuality awareness for teens of ages between 12 and 16. Through workshops and personal counseling, the Club can help kids develop leadership skills, learn about moral values and above all finding and improving themselves as better human beings.
