In an agreement with the City of Flagstaff, the Boys and Girls club will open this July in what was formally the Cogdill Recreation Center. This 8,750 square foot building located at 301 S. Paseo Del Flag near the NAU campus will provide educational, recreational, fine arts and leadership development programs for school age youth with special focus on children from disadvantaged circumstances.
