The Boys & Girls Clubs of Athens are celebrating the launch of their new YouthForce Innovation Hub on October 20th. The YouthForce Innovation Hub, which was made possible by Zach McElroy, the founder and Chairman of Zaxbys, will utilize interactive technology to help local teens to map their path to their future. These paths may include post-secondary education, technical skill training, or moving directly into the workforce.


The Boys and Girls Clubs of Athens serve over 350 children every day at our two facilities, Joel E. Smilow Club & The Club @ H.T. Edwards. 

The Boys and Girls Clubs of Athens aim to inspire and enable all young people to be successful. We do this by providing our members with a safe space to learn, grow, and have fun.
