Critical need for Clubs

Many young people face serious issues in childhood that can impact their success in adulthood:

  • 11.3 million children are home alone after school
  • 14.5 million youth live in poverty
  • 1 in 6 students fail to graduate from high school
  • About 2,700 juveniles are arrested daily
  • One-third of kids are overweight

For more than 150 years, Clubs have provided children and teens with a safe, caring environment, and the resources and guidance to achieve great futures. Today, 4,300 Boys & Girls Clubs across the nation serve 4 million youth each year, work that we believe changes young lives for the better.

Contact a Boys & Girls Club near you to find out if they are hosting a Day for Kids event!
