Boys & Girls Clubs are a safe place to learn and grow – all while having fun. It is the place where great futures are started each and every day.

In every community, boys and girls are left to find their own recreation and companionship in the streets. An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision. Young people need to know that someone cares about them.

Boys & Girls Clubs offer that and more. Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence.

Four key characteristics define the essence of a Boys & Girls Club.

Dedicated Youth Facility - The Boys & Girls Club is a place — an actual neighborhood-based building — designed solely for youth programs and activities.

Open Daily - The Club is open every day, after school, when kids have free time and need positive, productive outlets.

Professional Staff - Every Club has full-time, trained youth development professionals, providing positive role models and mentors. Volunteers provide key supplementary support.

Available/Affordable to All Youth - Clubs reach out to kids who cannot afford, or may lack access to, other community programs. Dues are only $20 per semester per child and only $25 per week per child in the summer.

The “education equation” is more than schools and parents. A crucial factor is the local community organization, which bridges the gap between academia and home.

Youth-serving organizations, such as Boys & Girls Clubs, often serve as partners to both teachers and parents by providing programs and resources to bolster schoolwork.

Every day, Clubs provide a wealth of programs and activities to prepare young people for real-world successes. By focusing on academics, health and fitness, and leadership and service, the children Clubs serve will be better prepared to graduate high school and thrive as adults, contributing to their communities and to their nation.
