Our Programs

Out-of-school hours can be challenging for youth in Collier County, but programs that engage kids – like those offered at the Boys & Girls Club – are working.

What We Do

We never take a single approach to help our kids succeed. It takes caring mentors, such as our trained Club staff. It takes a safe place, like our Clubs that are consistently there for the kids they serve. It takes innovative, quality programs designed to empower youth to excel in school and lead healthy, productive lives. We do whatever it takes to ensure all kids have a great future.

Our Core Programs

Boys & Girls Club is one of the largest and most comprehensive youth development organizations in Collier County. We know the key to success starts with a solid education. At Boys & Girls Clubs of Collier County, we show our kids and teens that with a focused approach and hard work, they can reach their goals in school and beyond. Our programs provide low or no-cost opportunities for youth to participate in fun and educationally enriching activities in five key program areas:



Education & Career


Character & Leadership


Sports, Fitness
& Recreation


Health &
Life SKills
