Communication

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Boys & Girls Clubs of Lanier is working to address the thousands of youth in the Lanier area that are unsafe and unsupervised after school and during the summer. These children go without any guidance during out-of-school hours, which are crucial to their academic success, character, and health. Under-served youth in the Lanier area struggle to succeed academically, have a greater chance of being overweight or obese, and are more likely to enter into the Juvenile Justice system.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The goal of Boys & Girls Clubs of Lanier is to provide a world class Club Experience that assures success is within reach of every young person who enters our doors, with all members on track to graduate from high school with a plan for the future, demonstrating good character and citizenship and living a healthy lifestyle.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Lanier's strategy to achieve this goal is to combine our Five Key Elements for Positive Youth Development with high-yield activities, targeted programs, and regular attendance.

Five Key Elements for Positive Youth Development:
1. Safe, Positive Environment
2. Fun
3. Supportive Relationships
4. Opportunities and Expectations
5. Recognition

Boys & Girls Clubs of Lanier has been a staple in the local community since 1954. In this time, the organization has evolved to ensure that we have the infrastructure to support the youth in our community who need us most. With 15 Club sites spanning Hall and Forsyth Counties, currently serving over 1,000 youth each day, BGCL is providing a safe and supervised place for kids to go during out-of-school time.

From our senior leadership team with over 95 years of combined experience in non-profits to our Youth Development Professionals who undergo vigorous training to provide the most effective programs, BGCL has the capability to meet our overarching goal.

BGCL is led by a Board of Directors composed of 30 diverse community members who are successful in a wide array of industries and organizations.
