Our Clubs serve more than 5,000 members in the Midlands area each year. Of this number, our Clubs welcome more than 2,500 members through their doors each day, and each young person often stays for more than three or four hours per visit.
Boys & Girls Clubs are accessible and affordable to all.
We offer a few ways to participate in Boys &Girls Clubs of the Midlands programs: Before and After School Care, Vacation Camps and Community Membership. Not every club offers every program.
We do not discriminate based on gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or income. Membership gives a young person access to nationally-recognized programs and a safe and positive environment to learn and grow.
