Project Description

Boys & Girls Club

Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston is the region’s leading youth-development organization. Since our beginning in 1952 as The Variety Boys Club, they have achieved an enviable record of creatively engaging, educating and empowering low-income youth in ways that improve their chances of achieving and sustaining academic and economic success.Their  vision is to put success within reach for our Club members and keep them on track to graduate from high school. They help them realize a positive plan for the future that includes good character, citizenship, and a healthy lifestyle.Over 17,000 youth ages 6 to 17 walk through their doors each year for our after school and summer programs. BGCGH is a safe haven for kids who commonly live in the midst of chaotic, dangerous neighborhoods and have limited positive relationships. At the Clubs, youth are provided meals, strong role models, homework assistance, organized athletics, character development and access to the arts. At our Clubs, there’s an opportunity for every kid to get involved and learn something new.
