Boys & Girls Clubs of Thurston County: Youth Inspiring Youth

Boys & Girls Clubs of Thurston County (BGCTC) inspire youth to realize their greatness. Boys & Girls Clubs fill the gap between school and home by providing a welcoming, positive, out-of-school environment where kids and teens have fun, participate in life-changing programs, and build supportive relationships with peers and caring youth development professionals. When COVID-19 closed schools in early 2020, the Clubs remained open and filled a vital role in supporting online learning for youth.

Whether it’s homework help and tutoring, art, sports and recreation, STEM activities, or gaming, the Club experience prepares kids and teens for future success. By focusing Club activities on Academic Success, Good Character & Citizenship, and Healthy Lifestyles, youth are better prepared to graduate from high school, have a plan for their futures, and thrive as adults.

Nearly 3,000 kids and teens annually find safety and support at their seven branch locations in Lacey (2), Olympia, Rochester, Tenino, Tumwater, and Yelm. Low membership fees and scholarships keep the Club accessible to youth who need them most, thanks to 76% of funding coming from generous individuals and community supporters.
