The Boys & Girls Clubs of Athens have provided a clean, healthy, and safe environment for youth ages 6 to 18 for over 50 years.  Our after-school 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 and learn.

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



SINCE 1962
