The Boys & Girls Club of the Big Bend is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that serves the needs of thousands of children and teenagers in the Big Bend area. We provide a positive and safe environment and a compelling alternative to drugs, crime and gang involvement. Our mission is "to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens." Our number one goal is for every single of our Club Members to graduate from high school on time with a plan for his or her future. We depend on the generosity of individuals and local businesses to provide scholarships for our members to participate in our programs.
