What is the Boys & Girls Club?


For more than a century Boys & Girls Clubs of America, through a network of more than 4,300 clubs across the nation and on military bases around the world have been working to enable young people to reach their full potential.

The Boys & Girls Club of Lincoln/Lancaster County, located at Park Middle School, serves on average, 300–350 youth each day.

For just $10 a year, a child will be able to benefit from the many programs and activities the Boys and Girls Club has to offer! Scholarships are available to those who need financial assistance. These programs, administered by caring adults, will help offer solutions to the problems facing today’s youth.

Concentrating on children who need us most, we provide each child who comes to our Club the tools to make positive choices. But we cannot do it alone. We need the support of caring people and community leaders like you.

Take a tour. Go on. Open the door!

Follow Boys & Girls Club members as they take you on a tour of their Club! It is a great place for teens and young kids to learn and grow after school and over the summers. Whether they love to play sports, visit with friends or catch up on homework, they’ll find it at their hometown Club. Go on. Open the door!

“The Boys & Girls Club gives me a chance to participate two times a week in Cooking Club.”

Be a Role Model

America’s young people need our help. Too many children and teens are not receiving the guidance they need to graduate from high school, to stay fit and healthy, and to become socially responsible.
