A Bold Change for Kids
BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS OF PHILADELPHIA PROVIDE A SAFE PLACE TO LEARN AND GROW; ONGOING RELATIONSHIPS WITH CARING, ADULT PROFESSIONALS; LIFE-ENHANCING PROGRAMS AND CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT EXPERIENCES; AND HOPE AND OPPORTUNITY FOR THOUSANDS OF PHILADELPHIA YOUTH EACH YEAR.
Despite the challenges faced by Philly’s youth, Boys and Girls Clubs of Philadelphia continue to stand strong for these forgotten kids and communities. Today, BGCP serves over 8,000 children, making us one of the largest youth-development organizations in the city. BGCP maintains an everyday presence in these communities providing youth with trained professional staff and proven programs to enhance their quality of life. However, the organization knows that we must do more to change the environment for all 220,000 of Philadelphia’s young people. BGCP strives to further our impact by enacting a Bold Change for the kids of Philadelphia.
