Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston

A United Way agency, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston's mission is to inspire and enable all youth to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens. Its vision is to put success within reach for Club members and keep them on track to graduate high school.

BGCGH helps them realize a bright future that includes good character, citizenship, workforce readiness, and a healthy lifestyle. Each year, more than 26,000 youth ages 6 to 17 participate in after-school and summer programs. They are provided meals, strong role models, homework assistance, organized athletics, character development, and access to the arts.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston utilizes volunteers in many ways. Head here to see a list of available opportunities.
