South Carolina Jr. Teen Reagan Foster shares her passion for dance teaching a class every week at the Boys and Girls Club of America. As the American family continues to transform, so does our schooling, and our expectancy of it. The turn of the 21st century has brought about major change within our families and lifestyles. More than ever, we now see extreme poverty, latchkey kids, excessive divorce rates, and new family patterns. All of these hardships our teens are coping with are being placed right in the laps of our schools and their facilities. These drastic changes in the American family are tremendously affecting today’s youth and the education they are receiving. The Boys and Girls Club of America provide stability in the lives of teens across America. Every school day from three to six teens can get tutoring; play sports, learn a new skill and participate in many more activities. Reagan became involved with the Boys and Girls club of America and fell in love with the kids, and she realized that there was something real she could do as a sixteen year old that would make a difference in the lives of her peers. Reagan currently teaches a weekly dance class at her local Boys and Girls Club of America, which gives her the opportunity to share her love for dance with many enthusiastic teens that have real hopes and aspirations. Reagan is playing a vital roll in helping young people overcome these obstacles by calling on her local leaders to help support and become involved with The Boys and Girls Club. She is also visiting local schools and speaking to her peers about the importance of helping those who can’t help themselves. Reagan is teaching teens it’s not about talking, but about “doing” that will make a real difference in her generation.
