Every child deserves the opportunity to be successful. Currently operating six Clubs throughout the region, Boys & Girls Clubs of Northwest Indiana (BGCNWI) has been offering hope and opportunity to local youth since 1954 by providing a safe place for kids to learn and grow through life enhancing after-school and summer programming. With the support of highly trained professional staff and adult mentors, BGCNWI helps build great futures by offering fun, engaging and impactful programs to thousands of youth, ages 6 to 18, throughout the region. When schools are out, Clubs are in!
