A SAFE PLACE
WHAT WE DO
Boys & Girls Clubs fill the gap between school and home. We provide welcoming, positive environments in which kids and teens have fun, participate in life-changing programs, and build supportive relationships with peers and caring adults.
The Boys and Girls Clubs of Athens aim to inspire and enable all young people - especially those that need us most - to realize their full potential as responsible, caring, and productive citizens.
The Boys and Girls Clubs of Athens serve over 450 children every day at our four facilities; Joel E. Smilow Club, The Club @ H.T. Edwards, Rocksprings Community Center, and Nellie B Community Center.
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.
