Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta works to save and change the lives of children and teens, especially those who need us most, by providing a safe, positive, and engaging environment and programs that prepare and inspire them to achieve Great Futures. Through 20+ Clubs in 10 metro counties, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta's trained and professional staff serves nearly 3,000 youth daily. Programs focus on helping kids get college and career ready, live healthy, and lead in their communities.

While it costs nearly $5,700 to serve each child, families only pay between $60 - $135 per child.

By 2020, we are working to make sure that 90 percent of the kids coming to our Clubs three days or more per week are on track to graduate on time, live healthy, and give back to their community.
