To inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.

The Boys and Girls Clubs give a kid a place to go, belong, learn sportsmanship, get help with homework and simply have fun.  We are a positive place, a life line in challenging circumstances.  Our Youth Development Strategy gives children a sense of usefulness, belonging, competence and influence.

The Boys & Girls Club Code
I believe in God and the right to worship according
to my own faith and religion.
I believe in America and the American way of life…in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
I believe in fair play, honesty and sportsmanship.
I believe in my Boys & Girls Club, 
which stands for these things.


 

Boys & Girls Clubs of America had its beginnings in 1860 with several women in Hartford, Conn. Believing that boys who roamed the streets should have a positive alternative, they organized the first Club. A cause was born.  In 1906, several Boys Clubs decided to affiliate. The Federated Boys Clubs in Boston was formed with 53 member organizations – this marked the start of a nationwide Movement. In 1956, Boys Clubs of America celebrated its 50th anniversary and received a U.S. Congressional Charter. To recognize the fact that girls are a part of our cause, the national organization's name was changed to Boys & Girls Clubs of America in 1990. Accordingly, Congress amended and renewed our charter. 2006 marked the Centennial year of Boys & Girls Clubs of America, as we celebrated 100 years of providing hope and opportunity to young people across the country.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of East Central Alabama was established on June 13, 1967.  We are governed by a 20 member Board of Directors.  For over 40 years the Boys & Girls Clubs have been in the forefront of youth development, working with young people from disadvantaged economic, social, and family circumstances.  We are dedicated to ensuring that our community's youngsters have greater access to quality programs and services that will enhance their lives and shape their futures.
