BGCA is joining the U.S. Armed Services to recognize the strength and resilience of military youth by celebrating Month of the Military Child in April. All month, BGCA-affiliated Youth Centers and traditional Boys & Girls Clubs will host events acknowledging the sacrifice of military-connected youth and their families. Join the celebration by simply wearing purple on April 26 to honor our military-connected youth. Post photos on your social media channels using #BGCPurpleUp #BGCMOTMC.
Four dynamic youth share the challenges of being a military kid and the support they received to overcome obstacles and become exceptional leaders.
Together, we have impacted the lives of millions of young people through high-quality programs designed to positively influence their overall well-being, resiliency, and academic success.
We offer a safe and familiar environment to military-connected youth who frequently relocate. From rural areas, schools and inner-cities to military installations and Native lands, a Boys & Girls Club or BGCA-affiliated Youth Center is located in all 50 states and in 16 countries around the world. No matter where you find yourself, a Boys & Girls Club is often available to enrich your young person’s life.
No-cost membership to a participating traditional Boys & Girls Club is now available to Military Youth ages 6 to 18 with a family member who serves in the Reserve, is in Active Duty or a member of the National Guard. Space is limited.
