Boys and Girls Clubs

Great Futures Start Here

We help youths realize their full potential.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Peoria is a local affiliate of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America — the nation’s oldest and largest organization. It is our primary mission to enable all young people, especially those in at–risk circumstances, to realize their full potential. With more than 3,400 local clubs in all fifty states, more than 4 million children are served annually by Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Peoria currently gives support, guidance and hope to 1500+ youths ages 6 to 18 years old.

Boys & Girls Clubs are designed to inspire and enable young people to become responsible, productive, caring citizens; to assure that every young person has the opportunity to share in the American Dream. And to provide young people with resources to succeed.

Staffed by trained youth development professionals, Clubs provide character development, educational enhancement and career exploration, working within the neighborhood where at-risk youths live. For many of our children, our staff are the most influential positive adult role models in their lives.
