Boys & Girls Clubs are places where who you are, where you're from and the circumstances that surround you don't determine your access to a great future.

Our Mission

To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

Our Approach

Five Key Elements for Positive Youth Development

  1. Create a safe, positive environment

  2. Generate fun and foster a sense of belonging

  3. Encourage supportive relationships with peers and adults

  4. Provide opportunities and set expectations

  5. Offer recognition

Targeted Programs

Targeted Programs are sequenced learning experiences with specific objectives for building skills and knowledge, organized into five Core Program Areas. They are targeted to help youth achieve positive outcomes in one or more of the Formula for Impact’s three priority outcome areas.

High-Yield Activities

High-Yield Activities are hands-on, interactive, fun experiences that intentionally develop and reinforce core skills explicitly taught through Targeted Programs and help support our three priority outcome areas.

Regular Attendance

Regular Attendance is important for deepening our positive impact on young people. We need to make sure they become members, attend often, and stay members as they grow up.
