The Boys & Girls Club of Manitowoc County (BGCMC) serves young people between the ages 6 to 12, with hopes to have Teen Programming for ages 13 to 18 in the future. It provides a safe after school environment which focuses on helping youth reach their full potential. In addition, it provides an affordable alternative for afterschool opportunities, which can have an economic impact on families.
The BGCMC is focused on helping kids create a vision for their future, improve their academic success, build character, a sense of responsibility and generosity. The Club aims to provide youth with a strong sense of belonging and the opportunity to form healthy relationships with peers and caring adults who are on a mission to see them become the best version of themselves.
The Impact of Club
For more than a century, Clubs have helped put young people on the path to great futures. Boys & Girls Clubs serve nearly four million young people each year, in over 4,100 Club facilities throughout the country and BGCA-affiliated Youth Centers on U.S. military installations worldwide.
This has resulted in positive measurable outcomes for academic achievement, career skill building, workforce development, juvenile crime reduction, prevention of opioid abuse, improved mental health, and positive civic engagement.
