The Club Experience:

Boys & Girls Club fills the gap between school and home. We provide welcoming, positive environments in which kids and teens have fun, participate in life-changing programs, and build supportive relationships with peers and caring adults.


Our Impact  plan calls for the Boys & Girls Club Movement to focus on three essential outcomes for Club members: academic success, healthy lifestyles, and good character and citizenship. While they are separate in many ways, they add up to the most essential outcome of all – young people who are prepared to enter the adult world as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

 Boys & Girls Clubs provide young people with:

  • A safe place to spend time during non-school hours and the summer as an alternative to the streets or being home alone.​

  • A chance to play, have fun, laugh and learn.

  • Opportunities to build new skills that raise each child’s belief that heor she can succeed and receive recognition for personal accomplishments.

  • Ongoing relationships with caring adults and connections to new friends in a positive environment, reinforcing a sense of belonging, personal accountability, civility and civic responsibility.

  • Generation-changing programs that support a commitment to learning, positive values, healthy habits and high expectations for success as an adult.
