We Are On A Mission.
To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
To provide a world-class Club Experience that assures success is within reach of every young person who enters our doors, with all members on track to graduate from high school with a plan for the future, demonstrating good character and citizenship, and living a healthy lifestyle.
OUR COMMITMENT TO INCLUSION:
We believe every kid has what it takes. The mission and core beliefs of Boys & Girls Clubs fuel our commitment to promoting safe, positive and inclusive environments for all. Boys & Girls Clubs of America supports all youth and teens – of every race, ethnicity, gender, gender expression, sexual orientation, ability, socio-economic status, and religion – in reaching their full potential.
Strive for equal opportunity and foster respect for human dignity.
Prepare youth to live in a richly diverse society through planned programs and services, which are supported by an organizational posture and policies based on total equality and representation at all levels of operation.
Initiate and promote services which enhance the quality of life.
Provide programs and services, both new and proven that are relevant to changing needs, with primary emphasis on optimal youth development and involvement.
Strengthen its role as spokesman for youth.
Develop a strong voice on behalf of youth and take the initiative to form and/or join alliances with other national and local organizations to support positive programs aimed at correcting those conditions which severely inhibit youth development.
HOW DO WE ACCOMPLISH OUR GOALS:
In order to meet our mission’s goals, we offer opportunities for Club members to participate in a variety of character-building activities, such as: field trips, leadership training, education and technology, community service, special events, mentoring, and sports (including swimming, basketball, flag football, golf, tennis). These are in addition to many other opportunities, along with educational support for students on the path to college.
REGISTER ONLINE or in person at the Boys & Girls Club that corresponds with with your child’s school. The summer months are also full of activity, open to children Monday thru Friday from 7:30am to 5:30 pm. And since transportation to and from the Clubs is provided by parents or guardians during the summer months, they have the ability to select the Club location most convenient for them.
Any child, age 6-18, is welcome in our program.
Your child can attend as much or little as is best for your family’s schedule. The cost for the school semester is $45 per child, with a $5 registration fee to cover lanyard and ID tag.
We have at least four full-time professional Directors at each location, as well as many part-time professionals. Our staff is well-trained in appropriate areas of child leadership.
