About Us

Celebrating over 25 years, the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County has been at the forefront of youth development, working with young people from disadvantaged economic, social and family circumstances. With 22 locations throughout the county, we are able to serve more than 8,000 youth annually with our after school, summer and outreach programming such as truancy.

The Clubs offer daily access to a broad range of programs that promote health, social, educational, vocational, character, and leadership development. Club programs foster a sense of belonging, competence, usefulness, and influence that builds self-confidence and self-esteem. The scope and depth of our programming addresses the community’s need for positive programs for these at-risk youth. For example, our SMART Moves program teaches resistance skills when dealing with substance abuse, HIV/Aids, smoking and premature sexual activity.

The Boys & Girls Club of SLC is part of Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA), a national organization. BGCA provides assistance to local Clubs via program creation, staff and resource development; organizational planning and administration.

Youth of the Year

 

Youth of the Year is Boys & Girls Clubs of America's premiere recognition program. It celebrates young people, ages 14 to 18, for their commitment to community service, academic success, good character and citizenship, and establishing long-term goals.

In the 21st-century world and workplace, leadership skills such as communication, goal-setting and teamwork are essential for everyone - especially young people preparing to meet the challenges of adolescence and adulthood. With a grassroots beginning in 1947, Youth of the Year has evolved into a comprehensive leadership development program, which includes:

Youth of the Month – Leadership Recognition Program
Junior Youth of the Year – Leadership Readiness Program, and
Youth of the Year – Leadership Development Program
