Our Mission

Mission Statement

The mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Northwest Georgia
is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most
to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

A Boys & Girls Club Provides:

  • A safe place to learn and grow
  • Ongoing relationships with caring, adult professionals
  • Life-enhancing programs and character development experiences
  • Hope and opportunity
  • A Safe Place for Kids

Every day more than 400 boys and girls in the Northwest Georgia area flash their assigned membership number to come into a safe haven where they are accepted for who they are, encouraged to do their best, and leave knowing they are valued and understood. Four key characteristics define the essence of a Boys & Girls Club. All are critical in exerting positive impact on the life of a child.

Dedicated Youth Facility

The Boys & Girls Club is a place—an actual neighborhood-based building—designed solely for youth programs and activities.

Open Daily

The Club is open five days a week, after school and during school breaks, when kids have free time and need positive, productive outlets.

Professional Staff

Every Club has full-time, trained youth development professionals, providing positive role models and mentors. Volunteers provide key supplementary support.

Available/Affordable to All Youth

Dues and program fees remain low and are discounted for those in need of assistance.
