Joshua’s life was brutal; the only adult he had to care for him was hurting him over and over again. When he arrived at Boys and Girls Country, Joshua struggled with anger, trust and socializing. He was behind academically and lacking confidence.
Last summer Joshua participated in a new experience--a musical band formed on the BGC campus. It turned out he was very passionate about drumming. It became a great outlet for him to connect with like-minded kids and explore his talents.
After a great experience in summer band, Joshua was motivated to pursue a spot in the Waller High School Marching Band. He became the first freshman on varsity drumline without any prior musical training or experience. Marching band is hard, but Joshua is committed. It gives him motivation to keep his grades up and participate in UIL competitions.
At Boys and Girls Country, summer is one of our most hectic times, but some of our kids’ biggest transformations happen during the summer break.
BGC provides a loving home for 87 more children like Joshua. They all have summer needs like more personal attention, extra counseling sessions and remediation in academic areas.
