Our mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us the most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. We focus on three life-changing goals for every child: academic success, good character & citizenship, and a healthy lifestyle.


To ensure that kids, Clubs and our colleagues are always our highest priorities, we commit to these values:

INTEGRITY: We are authentic, honest, and transparent; we strive to do the right thing every day, every time.

COLLABORATION: We work effectively within and across teams, with engaged and empowered people to accomplish our goals; we celebrate success together.

ACCOUNTABILITY: We do what we say and hold each other to the highest standards; we are impeccable stewards of all our resources.

RESPECT: We honor diversity and inclusion, treat others with respect, and express gratitude; we embrace alternative ways of thinking.

EXCELLENCE: We excel in service delivery, rigorously measure impact, and work to continuously improve ourselves and our organization; we are innovative.


In 1959 the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland County began serving the youth of Cleveland County. The Club was chartered with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America in 1966 and broke ground with our Main Club site opening shortly after in 1971.

We have stayed true to our goal to “serve more kids every day, especially those that need us most.” since opening and have had the opportunity to expand to a total of 10 locations. Since breaking ground in 1971, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland County has done whatever it takes to serve more kids in Cleveland County every day now with Club sites across Cleveland County!

We are supported daily by our incredible community, corporate partners, volunteers, board of directors, and dedicated staff. Every $1 you give comes back into our community x10 through the opportunities and programs the Boys & Girls Club provides for youth to succeed in school, work, and life.

If you are interested in partnering with the Boys & Girls Club, consider giving $10 per location to celebrate our latest expansion. Your gift of $100 will serve thousands of kids throughout our County! Our club locations across Cleveland County are open to volunteers and mentors and have career & internship opportunities year-round!

Thank you for every way that you support our Boys & Girls Club and have over the last 60+ years in Cleveland County.
