Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Cincinnati achieves its mission through the provision of a variety of after-school and summer programs including educational, recreational, arts & cultural enrichment, and character building programs.

Description

Established in 1939, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Cincinnati (BGCGC) provides daily afterschool and summer programs to children ages 6-18. Each year, approximately 12,000 youth in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky are provided with a safe and positive place to learn and grow at our 11 Club locations.

At the Boys & Girls Clubs, children can spend their non-school hours surrounded by caring adults and engaged in enriching, age appropriate youth development activities. Club Members have access to an array of programs in 3 core areas; (1) high school graduation, (2) healthy lifestyles, and (3) community engagement. Annual membership is FREE, with a completed application, and includes a daily, hot and nutritious meal. Moreover, Boys & Girls Clubs gets kids off the streets during the most dangerous time of the day, between 3-8p.m., according to the U.S. Department of Justice.
