Future Ready

Since 1930, the Boys & Girls Club of Dayton (BGCD) has delivered high-quality, after-school and summer programming in a safe space for youth K-12. Our mission is focused on inspiring, developing and helping young people reach their full potential because we believe that every child deserves a great future. Our vision is to see that every young person within our reach has access to a world-class club Experience – with the academic, mental and behavioral support they need, on track to graduate from high school, with a plan for the future, demonstrating good character and citizenship, and living a healthy lifestyle.

The Impact of BGCD

Every year, hundreds of Club members pass through our doors and access life-changing opportunities. In 2022, BGCD eliminated membership fees to make our programs accessible to all youth, caregivers, and families. Youth and teens in Dayton deserve access to our Club that is safe, fosters creativity, meets their ever changing needs, and helps prepare them to lead successful lives. And we have big plans for the future.
