Since 1926, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay has been in the forefront of youth development in the Tampa Bay area. We have worked to enrich the lives of young people and provide a safe haven in which they can learn and grow. We are dedicated to ensuring that our community’s disadvantaged and underserved youth have a tangible measure of hope and greater access to quality programs and services that will enhance their lives and shape their futures.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay offers youth surrounded by negative influences positive alternatives and access to dedicated, trained, professionals who can guide them toward healthy lifestyles and positive life-changing goals. Our Clubs are dedicated to youth and are open daily, both after-school and during the summer. After-school, all of our Clubs are open between the hours of 2pm-7pm, to combat the time when youth are most at risk for being involved in crime, substance abuse or teen pregnancy. During the summer, our Clubs are open weekdays, from 7am until 6pm to assist working families and to ensure youth have a safe place to spend their summer.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay provides support that is significant and distinguishable from what youth receive elsewhere – at home, in school, in church, in other private or public agencies.
