Learn more about the BGC-GKC and their mission to create a safe and supportive environment for all youth.

For more than 110 years, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City has been inspiring kids to live out their dreams through affordable, accessible opportunities in the urban core.

With the help of generous supporters, more than 5,000 local kids get to experience the life opportunities every child deserves. We give them outlets to learn and grow, access to mentors and peers who care, and the chance to let loose and be a kid – all in a safe space.

Whether it allows them to attend a​ baseball game​, ​see a private tutor​, ​take art classes​ or go on a field trip, your support provides the enrichment and resources to help kids stay on the path to a brighter future.

Life-changing experiences are possible through Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City

Many of the children we serve don’t have the opportunity to play team sports, experience the arts or even use a computer. With your support, our Whole Child Program Model helps children round out their educational, emotional, physical and moral development.
