The mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Western Reserve is to inspire and enable all young people to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. We believe in the possibility of GREAT FUTURES for all children.
In Akron, more than 2,000 young people participate in the programs provided by the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Western Reserve every year. Our programs help youth achieve Academic Success, practice Good Character and Citizenship, and live Healthy Lifestyles.
Our Clubs Provide:
A safe, positive environment where children are accepted for who they are and encouraged to do their best. We provide a place where every member feels valued and understood.
Opportunities to learn, grow, give back to the community, discover their talents, set goals and meet new friends.
Fun programs that are designed to not only help youth develop new skills and overcome obstacles but also to foster a safe, family atmosphere.
Supportive relationships with trained youth development professionals that are at our Clubs every day to greet every member by name. Staff members display appreciation, caring, acceptance and guidance to every member.
Daily affordable access from Monday through Friday right after school and all day during the summer. Membership dues are kept low to ensure that all young people can afford to join. Dues help members develop a sense of ownership and pride in their Club.
We greatly appreciate your support!
