Boys and Girls Club of Augusta Maine (Augusta Boys & Girls Club)

Helping Teens Grow


Donate

The mission of the Boys & Girls Club of Augusta is to serve teenagers, many of whom are disadvantaged. We provide caring adults in a safe place where adolescents can learn marketable skills and healthy living habits, and have opportunities to give back to the community. We offer strength-based community youth development services and activities, including truancy prevention, arts, recreation, nutrition/wellness activities, and pre-vocational training, that increase developmental assets, community engagement, and academic success for local students. We are the only organization in the Augusta area that provides free after school programming for at-risk, low-income (83% of our clients are eligible for free or reduced-price school meals), and low-performing teenagers.
