National Boys & Girls of America Club Week

April 7th – April 13th is National Boys & Girls of America Club Week!  

I am very blessed that I am a stay at home mom now however I was a working mom out of the home for over 11 years and single mom for 10 of those 11 years. More and more families have working parents these days and this means littles need a positive and safe place to be after school and during the summer. I was really happy to discover the is a Boys & Girls Club just north of the city I live in!

I think the Boys & Girls Club of America (BGCA) is a great program and I am excited to be sharing information about them with you all today. The BGCA has opened its doors to serve millions of boys and girls across the nation. There are more than 4,000 clubs that offer children a safe place to grow. The clubs provide guidance and fun, as well as engaging programs that help kids do well in school, give back to their communities and choose healthy lifestyles.

National Boys and Girls Club Week is a great opportunity to get to know you local BGCA!  I encouraging you to “Open the door. Take the tour.”  and ask a fellow neighbor or friend to join you. You can make a fun day of it by getting to know your community. Your local BGCA may have a tour available this week for you to learn more about what they do behind their blue doors. If you can’t make it to your local club, you can take a virtual tour.

Other fun things you might find during National Boys and Girls Club Week:

In addition, Clubs across the country will plan fun daily activities for Club members, their parents and the entire neighborhood to enjoy. These events include teen forums, carnivals, health fairs and so much more. Many Boys & Girls Club leadership and service groups (such as Torch and Keystone Clubs for tween and teen Club members) also use the week as a chance to give back to the community by volunteering at homeless shelters or assisted living facilities.

How else can you get involved? Information on how you can help support National Boys & Girls Club Week can be found HERE.

I wrote this review while participating in a campaign for Mom Central Consulting on behalf of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. I received a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.


  1. I’ve heard so many good things about BGCA and I’ve seen them around the metro area. I am so happy there are places like this available for kids who need it! Great info!

  2. We have a BGCA here in town and I am impressed with the different activities they have going for the children. I too am so glad that there is a great program like BGCA for children to have the fun activities, stay out of trouble, and have good role models. :)

  3. The Boys and Girls Club does a lot in our community and I know without it there would be a lot of kids with nowhere to go after school or on school breaks. I am very thankful for them :)

  5. Veronica DePrato says:

    Thanks for sharing this info! I’ve heard of the BGCA, but didn’t even know if there was a local club. I went to their site, put in our zip code, and found out there is one nearby!

  6. Thanks for the information, Bri! I may look this up and see if there’s one in our community. We just moved!

  7. Laurie J says:

    Thanks for sharing! I didn’t know a lot about the Boys and Girls Club. Sounds like a great organization!

  8. Sarah Hayes says:

    we have a g and b club in town and they are so great for the kids to have. i never had the chance to find out much about them so thanks for the info!

  9. Nicole Bear says:

    I have always wanted to volunteer with them!

  10. I grew up in a very small town that did not have an organization like this. BGCA sounds like a wonderful way to keep kids busy, safe, and involved with positive influences. I know my small town could have used a group like BGCA- thanks for sharing this info. Great for all parents to know. :)

  11. What a great organization!! I know a couple people who volunteer locally.

  12. Vicki Hale says:

    I haven’t heard of this organization, but I do volunteer at a store for the needy. We give free meals and clothing. I will look around my area for the BGCA. Thank you. Vicki

  13. Lily Munoz Ivey says:

    I’m a full time working mom so finding a safe place for my oldest is a priority. I’ll definitely check to see if we have a local program.

  14. What a great organization. I would love to get involved.
