To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as
PRODUCTIVE, CARING, RESPONSIBLE citizens.
At the Boys & Girls Clubs of Toledo, we have a bold vision: Success is within the reach of every child. We believe every boy and girl deserves a safe place to learn and grown; ongoing relationships with caring adult professionals; life-enhancing programs, character development experiences, and hope and opportunity for the future.
Four key characteristics define the essence of a Boys & Girls Club. All are critical in exerting a positive impact on the life of a child:
1. Dedicated Youth Facility:
The Boys & Girls Club is a place designed for youth programs and activities.
2. Open Daily:
The Club is open Monday through Friday, after school, when children need positive, productive outlets.
3. Professional Staff:
Every Club has full and part-time staff who are trained in youth development. Volunteers also provide key supplementary support.
4. Available and Affordable to All Youth:
Membership dues are affordable and the Clubs reach out to children who may be without access to other community programs.
