Who We Serve | Boys and Girls Club of Collier County

We serve over 3,000 children and teens, ages 6 to 18, in our clubs and afterschool programs, and through our partnership with the Naples Children and Education Foundation and Florida’s 21st Century.

We offer a safe place for young people to learn, grow and develop ongoing relationships with caring, adult professionals who support the educational, emotional, physical and social development of our youth and provide them with the resources needed to become successful adults.

BGCCC is dedicated to promoting the education, vocational and health leadership and character of boys and girls in a safe environment. The Club offers award-winning programs to help youth build self esteem and values.

Nearly 83% of members receive free or reduced lunch, 48% of members come from homes where English is not the main spoken language, 28% of members live in single parent households, and 63% of members live at, or below, poverty level.
