The Boys & Girls Club Family Center serves over 500 youth who consider this their second home, a place where they make new friends, uncover hidden talents and learn the skills they need to become productive, caring and responsible citizens.
When you give to the Boys & Girls Club Family Center, you are making a direct impact on our community.
Each child who walks through our doors is given a world of opportunity. From homework help to mentoring, dance to singing, swimming to basketball, art instruction to leadership and character development. The club works to ensure that no matter what their skills or interests, children who need us most are given the opportunity and access to the tools they need to succeed.
Every donation strengthens the Boys & Girls Club Family Center’s efforts to ensure that the club continues to grow and serve more youth every year. This is why we need your help! We rely on gifts from individuals like you to keep the lights on and keep our programs running, so every donation, no matter what size, makes a difference. No gift is too small.
The Boys & Girls Club Family Center provides an exemplary Club Experience for youth throughout the Springfield community. The Boys & Girls Club Family Center's vision is to ensure that each and every member is on track to graduate from high school, have a plan for their future, demonstrate good character and citizenship, and live a healthy lifestyle.
The Boys & Girls Club Family Center believes every child has the potential to BE GREAT. In support of this strong conviction, our Club strives to build caring, responsible citizens. Our programs and services promote and enhance the development of youth by instilling:
A sense of competence — feeling that there is something every member can do well.
A sense of usefulness — the opportunity to do something of value for other people.
A sense of belonging — in a setting where members know they are welcome and accepted.
A sense of power or influence — a chance to be heard and to help influence decisions.
"To Enable All Young People, Especially Those Who Need Us Most, To Reach Their Full Potential As Productive, Caring, Responsible Citizens."
