What does the Boys & Girls Club Do?
We understand that because of the many services we offer to the youth of Lee County many of our community supporters aren’t clear exactly what the Boys & Girls Clubs of Lee County (BGCLC) is all about.
We thought we’d take a moment to let you know that BGCLC is an outcome-driven, club-based organization offering both after-school and summer programs. By outcome-driven, we mean that our priorities focus on our youths’ academic success, development of good character and leadership, and adopting healthy lifestyle choices.
The Mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs:
