Critical need for Clubs

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

  • 11.3 million youth leave school each day with no place to go
  • 1 in 6 students fail to graduate from high school on time
  • 1 in 4 young people live in poverty
  • Juvenile violent crime escalates between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. on school days

For more than 150 years, Boys & Girls Clubs have provided young people with a fun, safe place to go after school and during the summer to spend time productively. Today, 4,300 Boys & Girls Clubs across the nation serve 4.3 million youth each year, work we believe puts them on the path to a great future.
