Founded in 1902, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago's mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. Serving nearly 17,000 youth ages 6-18, BGCC works to provide members with the emotional, educational, physical, and cultural resources that allow them to enjoy their childhood and eventually thrive in adulthood.
A Club for Life
BGCC has launched a new campaign to make sure every child in Chicago is part of A Club for Life.
