To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
Great Futures Start Here! For over 60 years, our organization has been in the forefront of youth development, working with young people from all economic, social, and family circumstances. Our organization has actively sought to enrich lives of girls and boys whom other agencies have had difficulty in reaching. We are dedicated to ensuring that our community's young people, especially those who come from disadvantaged circumstances, have greateer access to quality programs and services that will enhance their lives and shape their futures. The Clubs offer young people what they need and want most - adults who respect and listen to them; a safe environment where they can have fun and be themselves; and interesting, constructive, activites that channel youthful energy into challenging pursuits.

I participated in their annual Christmas Tree fundraising event and had a great time. It was organized, there was no pressure to 'make sales,' and enjoyed being able to represent BGC as well as the community.
