For over 25 years, the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County has been at the forefront of youth development, working with young people from disadvantaged economic, social, and family circumstances. With 23 locations throughout the county, we are able to serve more than 16,000 youth annually with our afterschool, summer, and outreach programming such as truancy.
The Clubs offer daily access to a broad range of programs that promote health, social, educational, vocational, character, and leadership development. Club programs foster a sense of belonging, competence, usefulness, and influence that builds self-confidence and self-esteem. The scope and depth of our programming address the community’s need for positive programs for these at-risk youth. For example, our SMART Moves program teaches resistance skills when dealing with substance abuse, HIV/Aids, smoking, and premature sexual activity.
The Boys & Girls Club of SLC is part of Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA), a national organization. BGCA provides assistance to local Clubs via program creation, staff and resource development; organizational planning, and administration.
To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
