About Us

Welcome!

Mission-Driven

Our mission is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us the most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible citizens.

Safety-Driven

Children’s safety is our highest priority. All our sites are state-licensed or license-exempt. All sites follow strict protocols for staff screening, training and interaction with children.

  • FBI Fingerprint Background Checks are conducted on every staff member over age 18 and every volunteer in direct contact with children.
  • Adults are prohibited from being alone with one minor.  This includes all of our service sites, bus rides to and from the Club, mentoring services, etc.
  • Adults are not to be alone with a child in the bathroom with the door closed; in some instances a staff member may be required to assist a child with toileting.
  • All staff receive training on sexual harassment, sexual grooming and signs of child sexual abuse.
  • All staff receive and review policies and procedures, including the employee toolkit and policy manual.
  • All program staff are required to receive professional development each year

For many children and families, the Boys & Girls Club is more than just a fun place to go. It is life-changing.
