What Makes Us Unique

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

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 and on weekends, 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 low, averaging $5 to $10 per year.
