Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland
Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland’s mission is to inspire and enable the young people who need us most to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, caring citizens.
Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland (BGCC) Club sites provide a safe, supervised environment and quality enrichment & recreation programs beyond school hours—i.e., after school, during the summer, and on Saturdays (at select Club sites). Club programming targets outcomes in three priority areas: Academic Success, Healthy Lifestyles, and positive Character & Citizenship. Club members dance, read, create art, play sports, grow food, visit museums, play math games, volunteer in the community, and hang out with good friends & great mentors. Each day, close to 1000 young people aged 6 to 18 attend 14 Club sites located throughout Greater Cleveland’s high-poverty neighborhoods.
