A safe place to learn and grow

Life-enhancing programs and character development experiences
Hope and opportunity
To inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens.
Why Boys & Girls Clubs Are Special
Four key characteristics define the essence of a Boys & Girls Club. All are critical in exerting positive impact on the life of a child:
1. Dedicated Youth Facility: The Boys & Girls Club is a place – an actual neighborhood-based building – designed solely for youth programs and activities.
2. Open Daily: The Club is open every day, after school, when kids have free time and need positive, productive outlets.
3. Professional Staff: Every Club has full-time, trained youth development professionals, providing positive role models and mentors. Volunteers provide key supplementary support.
4. Available & Affordable to Youth (ages 6–18): Clubs reach out to kids who cannot afford, or may lack access to, other community programs
