The 2022 Election is Coming Up!
The Boys & Girls Clubs of the San Luis Valley strongly believe in meaningful engagement with our civic processes to help create vibrant, healthy environments for kids, teens, and families across the many towns and communities within the valley we call home.
One CRITICAL way to achieve and promote engagement is to VOTE! Ensure your voice is heard and do what you can to be aware of the issues surrounding life in our community, state, and nation. Encourage friends, families, and community members to do the same.
We realize "talking politics" can be challenging in these times, but if we do not start normalizing these conversations and have the courage to engage in meaningful discussions, we ultimately fail ourselves and our children.
