SERVING LOCAL YOUTH FOR 115 YEARS
To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. Four key characteristics define the essence of a Boys & Girls Club. Each is critical in exerting a positive impact on the life of a child:
- DEDICATED YOUTH FACILITIES – Boys & Girls Clubs are places–actual neighborhood-based buildings–designed solely for youth programs and activities.
- OPEN WHEN KIDS NEED US MOST – The Clubs are open weekdays after school and during the summer when kids have free time and need positive, productive outlets.
- TRAINED, PROFESSIONAL STAFF – Every Club is directed by trained youth development professionals who act as role models and mentors to members. Volunteers provide key supplementary support.
- AVAILABLE & AFFORDABLE TO ALL YOUTH – For a $25/year annual membership, any child between the ages of 5 and 18 can become a Club member. We do not discriminate based on gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or income.
Youth of the Year
Youth of the Year is Boys & Girls Clubs signature effort to foster a new generation of leaders, fully prepared to live and lead in a diverse, global and integrated world economy. Arrionna is a junior at Centennial High School where she is a cheerleader and has aspirations of becoming a pediatrician.
Character & Citizenship
Last Friday our Preston Taylor Clubhouse members surprised Metropolitan Nashville Police Department officers with a yummy treat before they headed out to keep Nashville safe! Boys & girls club members organize and carry out numerous projects to lend a hand and make a difference in their schools, clubs and communities. Our character and leadership programs challenge kids to be community-minded and empower them by demonstrating how they can affect change by working together.
Swish: It’s Clubhouse Basketball Season! Club programs, such as ALL STARS, help develop physical fitness, reduce stress and promote a positive use of leisure time, appreciation for the environment and interpersonal skills. Organized sports leagues and fitness programs increase opportunities for physical activity, social interaction and recognition through organized sports programming for youth. This program is funded by Buffalo Wild Wings and serves youth ages 6-18.
