Our mission is the Movement's reason for being... To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.
We envision a future in which the Boys & Girls Club is a catalyst for an age in which success is within reach of every child, and whole generations of children are inspired to a level of civic engagement not seen since the founding of our nation.
Our Core Beliefs
A Boys & Girls Club provides: A safe place to learn and grow... Ongoing relationships with caring, adult professionals... Life-enhancing programs and character development... The chance to experience hope and opportunity...
What Kids Need
We give kids what they need to succeed. The following outcomes summarizes our expectations and opportunities for young people in Clubs:
Development of Competencies
Community and Civic Involvement
Health and Well-Being
The Boys & Girls Club Movement engages youth in activities that are fun and enjoyable while supporting development of the capacities described above. This is accomplished through Club programs daily and in the enriching relationship between youth and Club staff. Clubs cannot acheive their goals without community support and caring, capable staff who develop relationships with young people while influencing their ability to succeed in life.
