Rising to the Challenge of COVID-19
Living a healthy lifestyle is about making good choices—not just nutrition and fitness, but setting goals and priorities, and avoiding common pitfalls that derail young people on the road to a productive adulthood.
Whatever It Takes to Build Great Futures
There is no silver bullet to success. It takes an army of people, a safe environment, high-quality programs and unique experiences to level the playing field for all kids. Boys & Girls Clubs don't just do one thing, we do whatever it takes to build great futures for Valley youth.

Michelle S., BGCY Parent
“I can see with my own children they’ve changed since they’ve been coming to the Club. They’ve learned, and I see it with the other children I come into contact with as well.”
Carl J., BGCY Alumnus
"The Club kept me off the streets, alive, & out of trouble with great mentors like Mr. Culliver & Mr. Forrest. It was only the Boys Club back then. [I am] forever greatful to The Boys & Girls Club of Youngstown for helping me become the person I am today."
Ja'Quan W., 2020 Youth of the Year
"I feel like the Club is like another home to me, a safe place to get away from the drama, and be myself without worrying about anything bad happening. I enjoy being at the Club so I can make new friends that see me for me, and learn new things that I may possibly never get to learn anywhere else. I see the Boys & Girls Club as family!"
Trinity A., 2019 BGCY Youth of the Year
"The Club is my second home. If I ever need something that I can’t get from home, I know I can come to the Boys & Girls Club. It has changed my life tremendously."
