Our Mission

BGCA_Web_Ready-107The Boys & Girls Club is more than a place, it is a “movement” to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

By reaching children at an early age and providing safe, positive activities and encouragement, our Club provides a compelling alternative to youth crime, gang membership, drugs, and other negative influences that effect our youth today.

Our Club is a safe and stable place that ensures the physical and emotional safety of young people by promoting their development and instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, influence and belonging. When this strategy is fully implemented, self-esteem is enhanced and an environment is created which helps our members achieve their full potential. Additionally, our members learn to:

* Enjoy their interests 
* Nurture their talents 
* Dissolve their prejudices 
* Express their personality 
* Develop friendships 
* Build self esteem 
* Contribute to society 
* Achieve personal success
