The mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington (BGCGW) is to help boys and girls of all backgrounds, especially those who need us most, build confidence, develop character and acquire the skills needed to become productive, civic-minded, responsible adults.
BGCGW serves over 15,000 youth a year through membership and community outreach programs at 12 sites throughout the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia. Over 1,200 youth enter our Clubs each day throughout the school year and serve a population of whom nearly half live at or below poverty (qualify for free or reduced lunch).
Our clubs can give hope to an entire community. YOU can open the door to a brighter tomorrow for more children at all of our Clubs in the DC Metro region.
