Since 1950, the Boys & Girls Club of Bowling Green has been changing lives and building great futures for kids who need a safe and positive place to spend the most vulnerable times of the day—immediately after school and on school breaks, when supervision is often lacking and temptations are great. Our doors are open to the community’s youth, who are invited in to enrich their lives with Club membership, exceptional staff and volunteers, high-quality services and innovative programs, all at only $25 per school year. Every day, all of our kids do the things in this “home away from home” that will ultimately make a difference in their lives. They do their homework, and when they need help, we help them learn, grow and move forward with determination toward high school graduation and a plan for the future. They sit down together for a hot, nutritious meal, and learn about what to eat, how to cook and what to do to keep themselves healthy and fit for life. They serve each other in the Club and others in the community as they nurture the value of giving back. We are rightfully proud of our tradition and constantly work to build better, stronger homes in the Clubs so our kids can grow even brighter futures for themselves and for all of us. Because of our mission, history and vision for the future, BGCBG has become one of Bowling Green’s strongest and most beloved youth service organizations. This is what we do, and this is who we are. Great futures start here.
To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
