The Boys & girls Club of Benton County enables and inspires youth to reach theri full potential in a safe and nurturing environment.
Incorporated in July of 1991, the Boys and Girls Club of Benton County is governed by 24 volunteer directors. In addition to their personal financial contributions to the Club, board takes an active role in Club programs. We operate 4 facilities providing school-age kids a safe and positive place in After School and Summer youth development programs. Many youth spend as much as four to five hours at the Club in after school programs and youth often spend the entire day at the Club in summer programs. The Club sponsors athletic programs for over 1,200 youth in volleyball, basketball, volleyball and cheerleading; 22 unique special development programs with thousands of kids attending; and hundreds of families provided support in 7 unique family support programs. Much like the area in which we are located, the Club has experienced tremendous growth in numbers and diversity over the past five years.
