LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Kids who have grown up under the guidance of the Boys and Girls Club of Central Arkansas talk about the benefits of a focused community.

Kids within a range of ages stopped by KARK 4 News at 4 to discuss how the organization has opened pathways and programs in their lives between sports, activities and technology to shape who they are.

The non-profit organization is donation-based and is expanding its outreach and providing more opportunities through times when a focused life can take young people away from harm and strengthen sense of community.
