The Boys and Girls Club of Tabula Rasa
The Boys & Girls Club of Tabula Rasa, a unique program developed between Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Twin Oaks Juvenile Development, Inc., provides Boys & Girls Club programming to youth in all five of Twin Oaks residential facilities. The program was developed based on the Targeted Re-Entry Concept which seeks to provide successful re-entry services to youth by introducing them to Boys & Girls Club programming while in the facilities. After they are released youth are paired up with local clubs to help in providing support for them to stay out of trouble. Tabula Rasa gives our youth hope and opportunity during the time they need it most. This program aims to revolutionize the re-entry process for youthful offenders, by providing youth with the support network that only an organization like Boys & Girls Clubs can provide.

We are pleased to announce that we have received the 21st Century Grant for the 2019-2020 school year for the elementary schools in Madison, as well as the residential facilities of Twin Oaks Juvenile Development. Our goal is to provide a safe environment for personal growth in academics, arts, and fitness. We strive to develop ground breaking activitivies and projects that both challenge and excite the minds of the youth we serve.
