Thinking Out Loud: In Service to Columbia's Youth

Nov 4, 2016

From their center on North Seventh Street, The Boys & Girls Clubs of Columbia offers soccer, tutoring and other focused activities to kids who might otherwise go unsupervised after school. On this week's Thinking Out Loud, we talk with the non-profit's participants and staff. We also preview next month's play Street Stories: Glimpses of Homelessness, which is a benefit for local groups that work with unsheltered Columbians.
