Mission Statement

To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

Description

An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision. Young people need to know that someone cares about them. At Boys and Girls Clubs of Albany, kids from all walks of life have a safe and supportive place to develop. We offer a variety of program activities and support services designed to assist kids, ages 6 to 18 years-old, in their educational, emotional, physical, and social development, without regard to social, racial, ethnic, or religious background.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Albany serves over 3,000 youths annually, ages 6-18, throughout Dougherty County at 9 locations. We have three traditional Clubs which are the Jefferson Street Club at 1309 N. Jefferson Street, the Jane Willson Club at 1012 Holloway Avenue and the East Albany at 1112 Inverness Road (this Club provides services for boys only). We have a partnership with the Albany Housing Authority and they provide space for two Clubs- the McIntosh Homes Club at 701 W. Society and the Lipsey Pate Club at 129 Whittlesey Court. Our partnership with the Dougherty County School System provides space for three clubs in the schools-Sylvester Road, Lamar Reese and MLK. Our Covenant Club is located in the gym of Covenant Presbyterain Church at 2126 W. Edgewater.

Boys & Girls Clubs members are encouraged to stay in school and are shown that someone cares and wants them to become active happy citizens of our community. Members are encouraged through academic success, career development, good character and citizenship and healthy lifestyles programs.
