Kids Need Us

Today’s young people face difficult challenges. Some challenges are as old as humanity—neglect and abuse, poverty, peer pressure, competition. Some challenges are fairly new—knowing you are poor, instant access to everything on the web, a job market that largely demands more than a high school diploma, increasingly fragmented home lives, schools caught in a stream of constantly changing standards, and conflicting ideologies with no reasonable basis.

Today, more than ever, kids need our Boys & Girls Clubs. Our Clubs are outcome-focused, staffed with trained mentors, and based in high poverty schools to reach large numbers of children each day afterschool. This website is designed to help you learn more about Who We Are, What We Do, Why We Care, and how you can get involved by giving, and volunteering.
