Who They Are
Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington’s (BGCGW) 12 sites—covering a territory of 75 miles that stretches from Manassas to Germantown—serve as safe havens for our members. The clubs are open when schools are not, and provide a safe, comfortable, and fun alternative to youth who would otherwise be home alone or on the street. Over 1,200 youth attend the Clubs for activities every day, to see their friends, and to spend time with positive and encouraging adults. Clubs are open after school on weekdays. Some have Saturday hours, and many offer full days during school holidays and summers.
