Boys & girls club - Schurz unit
The Schurz Club opened its doors on November 15, 2004 in a local elementary school.
One month later, the Tribal Elders moved out of their former building, giving the Club the opportunity to move in. This provided a larger space and separate areas for the games room, education room, and arts and crafts center. The building was also closer to the community gym. After moving to the new site, the Club’s average daily attendance more than doubled.
In February 2005, the Tribal Council approved the usage of funds to build a 2,500 square foot building. On June 30, 2005, the new Club officially opened. Representatives of Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Congressmen, local and state dignitaries, and Club members were all on-site to celebrate this great accomplishment! Today, youth take part in traditional Boys & Girls Clubs programs while also incorporating cultural elements such as demonstrating beadwork techniques and teaching the Paiute language.
The Schurz Unit Boys & Girls Club is operated under the parent organization, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley.
