America’s Youth in Crisis

11.3 million kids (1 out of 5) leave school every day with no place to go. They risk being unsupervised, unguided and unsafe.

Kids and teens need Clubs.

  • Juvenile violent crime escalates between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. on school days
  • 1 out of 6 students fails to graduate from high school on time
  • 1 out of 5 young people lives in poverty
  • 43 million kids lack access to summer learning programs, putting them at a significant disadvantage at the start of each school year.

Boys & Girls Clubs are making a difference.

Boys & Girls Clubs provide young people with a safe place to go after school and during the summer as well as a positive outlet for their energy. Out-of-school hours serve as the essential link between school and home, offering the greatest opportunity to influence the future of our kids, our communities and our country. Boys & Girls Clubs of America seeks to ensure that all kids, especially those who need us most, have a positive and enriching experience when the school bell rings, putting them on the path to success.
