Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta’s mission is to save and change the lives of children and teens, especially those who need them most, by providing a safe, positive, and engaging environment and programs that prepare and inspire them to achieve great futures.

The Douglas County club gives exceptional value in youth development at a cost that is affordable for all families.

It focuses on developing healthy lifestyles, strong character and leadership skills with emphasis on academic excellence.

In a little more than two short years, the club after opening its doors to a million-dollar teen center has nearly doubled teen enrollment.

In 2012, 100 percent of the club’s high school graduating seniors went on to further their education through either college, vocational or technical school or the military.
