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 membership cards 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

Clubs reach out to kids who cannot afford, or may lack access to, other community programs.
Dues are kept low and are discounted for those in need of assistance.
