The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Midlands serves kids age 6-18 in the metro area. With 11 program sites, our mission is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, healthy and caring members of society. It is our vision to be a leader in youth development. We are transforming our community by providing youth with impactful, fun, and educational opportunities in a safe environment.
Clubs operate in the most poverty-stricken areas of metropolitan Omaha. For our members, the Club is a second home, providing a safe and fun place to go after school. For young people who often come from desperate circumstances, such opportunities are truly life-changing. At "the Club," a member can discover a hidden talent, get help with their homework, discuss important issues with their peers in leadership groups, contribute to a community service project, get a warm, nutritious meal and engage with caring adults.

All BGCM programming ends in providing a great experience for the kids and making sure that every youth has a plan for after graduation, whether that be a community college, university, military, or employment with future job training. Join us in "Keeping Our Community Safe" by supporting our programs to keep kids off the street and provide great futures!

BGCM provides comprehensive programming for the low cost of $30 per year, per member, due to receiving additional donations from generous individuals, like you. We cannot do it without you.
