Florida TaxWatch released a study on Thursday which finds Florida Boys & Girls Clubs (FBGC) produce good students who stay out of trouble with the law when compared to their peers. The study shows children involved with FBGC have higher median reading scores on the FCAT and considerably less involvement with the juvenile justice system, all of which saves taxpayers.
“The Florida Boys and Girls Clubs provide opportunities for at-risk youth to be successful in the classroom and develop into responsible citizens,” said Dominic Calabro, the president and CEO of Florida TaxWatch.
