The Boys & Girls Clubs of Athens has provided a clean, healthy, and safe environment for youth ages 6 to 18 for over 50 years.  Our afterschool activities are designed to fully engage our members in skill building exercises while encouraging them to have fun.  

In addition, we provide the latest proven youth development programs. All activities are supervised by professional staff members and dedicated volunteers. The staff works hard to provide positive experiences for youth on a daily basis. Bus routes directly from all the schools in the Athens area provide opportunities for kids to attend regularly. The Boys & Girls Club is an asset to the Athens community. It gives the youth of Athens a place to play, work and learn.


Here are a few facts about the club and community you might not know:


  • 71% of students in the Clarke County School System come from an economically disadvantaged background. 

  • The dropout rate for students in Clarke County is higher than the state average and the graduation rate of the students who stay in school is around 70%.

  • Each year the average test score of students that attend our clubs is consistently improving.


We provide a safe environment for youth to learn about life and the possibilities the future holds.
