To inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us the most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens.
Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area is Austin’s leading youth development agency, serving almost 12,000 kids via 24 Clubs in the most economically distressed areas of Austin. Each day, kids are exposed to life enhancing programs that enrich them both academically and socially. Club members have better school attendance, make better grades, graduate at a higher rate than their economically disadvantaged peers, and are more likely to attend college in comparison to their peers. More than a safe haven for kids “at risk,” the Clubs nurture, inspire and celebrate the limitless potential of our young people. Through the Clubs, kids are given the tools and opportunities to create GREAT FUTURES.
