Center for a New Generation at Connally Elementary Boys & Girls Club
On July 7, CNG at Connally Elementary Boys & Girls Club drum line had yet another great performance for parents, staff and family. The drum line is just one of the many enrichment and arts activities that students can participate in each day after school and during the summer. Each semester the drum line students have a wonderful time learning the discipline and skill that goes along with nurturing their interest in playing musical instruments. Since the inception of CNG at BGCMA last year, Mr. Howard has been directing the drum line.

BGCMA launched The Center for a New Generation (CNG), a new educational program, at Connally Elementary School in February 2010. The program is one piece of an overall education strategy. CNG was originally started by Condoleezza Rice in California for elementary students with average performance who had the potential to succeed with the right support. With a high rate of success, the program began partnering with local Boys & Girls Clubs across the country.
CNG, now recognized as CNG at Connally Elementary Boys & Girls Club, opens its doors to K- 5th grade students after school each day at Connally Elementary School. Members have a unique opportunity because they can experience the CNG program at this location and also take part in traditional Club programs at W.W. Woolfolk Boys & Girls Club located just across the street.
CNG at Connally Elementary Boys & Girls Club provides our students with an enriched academic experience using hands-on, minds-on projects in math, science, language and the arts that nurture the joy of learning. We encourage kids and teens to enjoy learning, appreciate education, express themselves through visual and performing arts and push for high performance during elementary, middle and high school.
