Each day, we provide services to 650 - 1,000 children and families at twelve different sites in our community. Our programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys & girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness & belonging.

Four key characteristics define the essence of our Boys & Girls Club. All are critical in exerting positive impact on the life of a child:

1. Dedicated Facility: An actual neighborhood-based building – designed solely for youth programs and activities.

2. Accessibility: Our Clubs are open every day after school & during the summer when kids have free time and need positive, productive outlets.

3. Professional Staff: We have trained youth development professionals that are positive role models and mentors. Volunteers provide key supplementary support.

4. Availability: We are here to help all kids, including those who cannot afford, or may lack access to other community programs.
