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.
