Imagine a place where who you are, where you're from or the circumstances that surround you don’t determine your access to experiences or opportunities. Through your support, Boys & Girls Clubs are making that vision a reality — in your community and communities around the world.

97% of Club teens expect to graduate from high school and 88% expect to complete some kind of post-secondary education.
