Since 1962, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Athens have given the youth of Athens-Clarke County a safe place to learn about life and explore possibilities for the future. 


Our youth development programs, both after-school and over-the-summer, are designed to fully engage our members in skill-building exercises while also encouraging them to have fun. Our staff works tirelessly to provide our members with positive experiences in an encouraging and constructive environment. Our core focus areas are the arts, education, health & wellness, leadership & service, and sports & recreation. 


We have over 1,200 registered club members, and serve 450+ children daily between our 7 sites in Athens-Clarke County. Two of our units are located within public housing communities through partnership with the Athens-Clarke County Unified Government and the Athens Housing Authority. Clarke County School District provides after-school transportation to the clubs, so our kids are able to attend regularly.



SINCE 1962
