A Safe Place to Learn & Grow

Every child deserves a place where they can just be what they are – kids – without
the pressures and hardships that cause so many of them to grow up too soon.
The Boys and Girls Clubs of Chattanooga offer a safe place for young people to learn
and grow by providing ongoing relationships with peers and caring adults along with
life-enhancing programs and character development opportunities.
Our boys and girls learn to become responsible leaders in their Clubs, neighborhoods
and society. The Boys and Girls Clubs change lives by instilling in each child; a
sense of self-worth and positive values and enabling each child to realize dreams that
might otherwise pass them by.
We’re Investing in Lives One Child At A Time – and in many cases, we’re saving
lives. And it’s all made possible through your continued support. Your investment
creates returns that truly last a lifetime.
