Join The Club

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Cincinnati helps to save and transform the lives of at-risk youth through providing free, out-of-school and summer youth development programs that supports our youth to become productive adults breaking the cycle of poverty and contributing to our community.

Serving over 5,000 youth in 10 Clubs in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, we take on a holistic approach of engaging and developing the kids that need us the most by providing them with the tools and support they need to reach their full potential.  Our expectations include consistent, frequent engagement, and strong commitment to our program model.  We think of ourselves as an extension of their family and together, we make it possible for our young people to graduate, be better prepared for life, and stand ready to serve their community. Armed with these core life skills, our members complete the transformation from at-risk youth to productive adults who contribute to our community.
