A Message from Our Leadership

In every community, boys and girls are left to find their own recreation and companionship. An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision. Young people need to know that someone cares about them. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis offers that and more. Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of all youth by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence.

Thanks to the support we receive from many donors and organizations, the Club continues to be The Positive Place for Kids! For over fifty years, BGCSTL has been providing after-school, teen, sports and summer programs to youth in the St. Louis area while also providing a safe place for them to learn and grow. The Clubs serve youth across the region at twelve locations, including (Adams Park Club, Boys & Girls Club of Bethalto, Boys & Girls Club of Lovejoy, Hazelwood Elementary School Club, Herbert Hoover Club, Mathew-Dickey Boys’ and Girls’ Club, Normandy High School, O’Fallon Park Club, Riverview Gardens Club, Roosevelt High School, Hazelwood Southeast Middle School Club and the Teen Center of Excellence). We also operate the Mentor St. Louis and St. Louis Internship programs.

We provide all Club Members with services that will benefit them and our region for generations to come. In addition, we partner with many local organizations and are a community asset in five locations across St. Louis. Our kids continue to receive premium programming that addresses the challenges they face on a regular basis. With 83% of our kids eligible for free or reduced lunch, 75% headed by a single parent, and 26% below the federal poverty level – providing a safe place to learn and grow is essential.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis sees a future in which success is within the reach of every child in our region. Our vision can only be attained by the sustained commitment, generosity, and enthusiasm of our many local, regional and national partners. Thank you for helping us continue to reach out to those most in need of our services.

With our combined efforts – Great Futures Start Here!

Sincerely,
