Imagine a place where who you are, where you are from or the circumstances that surround you do not determine your access to experiences or opportunities. Through your support, Boys & Girls Clubs are making that vision a reality.
This month, Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee (BGCMT) is celebrating 120 years of serving youth in our community. BGCMT has enabled young people, especially those who need them most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.
Annually, more than 6,000 youth are served at thirteen Middle Tennessee Boys & Girls Clubs in Davidson and Williamson counties. The Clubs provide a safe place with professional staff and high-impact youth development programs daily during critical after-school hours and summer break.
BGCMT’s strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency have earned it a four-star rating from Charity Navigator – America’s largest independent charity evaluator. Boys & Girls Clubs give youth a sense of belonging and the tools to achieve academic success, healthy lifestyles and good citizenship.
