NBGC is a small, independent nonprofit dedicated to leadership development and creating safe spaces for Chicago youth.
At NBGC, youth come first. Our mission is to enhance the well-being and develop the potential of its members, their families and the community. We believe in strengthening communities and encouraging growth through inclusive athletic programs, affordable after-school care, and motivational leadership opportunities.
During COVID-19, we have shifted to accomodate our families needs, creating a socially distant summer camp, free meal program for families who need it, and online support for families. During this unprecedented time, our mission to provide support to children, their families, and the community has remained strong.
Despite current events, we are passionate about children leading active and healthy lifestyles. In the spirit of our motto, "everyone plays," We are excited to announce our new virtual event, NBGC's 1st Annual 5K Fun Run. We hope you'll join us-virtually!- for this time of activity and fun.
