SERVING LOCAL YOUTH FOR 117 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, youth between the ages of 5 and 18 can become a Club member. We do not discriminate based on gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or income.
Announcing our 2021 Youth of the Year!
We are thrilled to announce Jehlin as our 2021 Middle Tennessee Youth of the Year. You may recognize him as the emcee for the 2018, 2019, and 2020 Great Futures Galas, but Jehlin has been a Club member since he was just four years old. He is passionate about helping his community, from serving meals to families in need after the devastating 2020 tornadoes to proposing a park before the Nashville Civic Design Committee as a young ambassador.
