Our History

 

In 1956, the Boys & Girls Club of West Cook County was founded as the Boys Club of Bellwood.  Like others across the country, our Club was started by local residents and businesses who wanted to establish an organization that filled the emotional, social and physical needs of the boys of the community. In 1992, we officially welcomed girls as members and opened a new gymnasium. To acknowledge an expansion of services, we changed our name to the Boys & Girls Club of West Cook County in 2001. 

Our Community, Our Kids!!!

 

For over 60 years, the Boys & Girls Club of West Cook County has been providing our community’s children and teens with a safe place to learn and grow in the hours between school and home.  We recognize children & teens individual needs. And our enrichment programs provide West Cook County families and its community members with a place for their children to be able to participate in developmental programs in a safe and nurturing environment.

You can help make it possible for our youth to continue to participate in activities and programs that will help steer them toward a happy, healthy and productive future. 

Please invest in the children and teens at  the Boys & Girls Club of West Cook County.
