Established in 1967, the Club offers daily access for children ages 6-18 years to a broad range of programs in five core areas: Character and Leadership Development, Education and Career Development, Health and Life Skills, the Arts and Sports, Fitness and Recreation. The Club serves 4,500+ children in Wake County through seven facilities.
Four key characteristics define the essence of a Boys & Girls Club. All are critical in exerting a positive impact in the life of a child:
A Boys & Girls Club is a place—an actual neighborhood-based building— designed solely for youth development purposes.
The Club is open after every school day on Saturdays, and throughout the summer- when kids have free time and need positive, productive outlets.
Every Club has full-time, trained youth development professionals— providing role models and mentors. Part-time staff and volunteers provide key supplementary support.
Clubs reach out to kids who cannot afford, or may lack access to, other community programs. Membership fees are low, only $7.50 per year to join.
