Our Vision

We envision a future where we provide great influence and transform the life of each child we serve, and where our club members discover their potential, achieve their dreams and grow up to be healthy, successful, and active participants of society.

Our Mission

The Boys & Girls Club of the Monroe Area provides a safe, supportive environment where children and youth will experience new opportunities, overcome barrieers, build confidence, and develop positive relationships which will help them to reach their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens of our local and global world.

Why Great Futures Start Here

For nearly two decades, Boys & Girls Club of the Monroe Area has been in the forefront of youth development, working with young people from disadvantaged economic, social and family circumstances. We enrich the lives of girls and boys that other youth agencies fail to reach. We are dedicated to ensuring that our community's young people, who are most in need of our help, have greater access to quality programs and services that help them succeed academically, live healthy lifestyles and become leaders. Since 1996, we have provided children with a positive place to go, results-oriented programming and a professional staff to guide them. We serve 400 young people daily through six Clubs, the school systems, and outreach programs. Clubs are located in communities with the greatest need where similar services are limited or nonexistent. We ask families to pay only $35 per week per child for afterschool services and no child is turned away due to inability to pay. A private, nonprofit organization, we improve young lives as well as the communities that surround and support us. The organization relies upon private, corporate, individual and United Way funding to fill the gap between membership fees and operational expenses.

Discrimination Policy

The Boys & Girls Club of the Monroe Area does not discriminate against any individual with regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, veteran status or other protected status. No form of discrimination, including harassment, will be condoned.
