The Boys & Girls Club of Benton County has been providing fun and engaging programs for the youth in our community for over 25 years. Today, we have over 3,800 club members and serve an average of 700 kids each day at our five locations. The club offers a safe and affordable place where children can participate in life-enhancing programs and build supportive relationships with peers and caring adults. We encourage and inspire each child to reach their full potential, guiding them on a path to a great future!
To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
To ensure all kids who need us the most have access to a world-class club experience, which assures that success is within their reach, they graduate high school on time and they become productive members of our community.
We believe every child, regardless of circumstances, should have a chance to be great in their own unique way. Our membership dues are kept low so that any child, ages 6 to 18, can walk through our doors where they engaged and encouraged to reach their full potential.
We strive to instill character and confidence in our members by implementing programs focused on three core impact areas:
- Character & Citizenship | Club members will be engaged citizens involved in the community and model strong character.
- Academic Success | Club members will graduate from high school on time with a plan for the future.
- Healthy Lifestyles | Club members will adopt healthy diets, practice healthy lifestyle choices and make a lifelong commitment to fitness.
The Boys & Girls Club of Benton County is proud to be a chartered member of our highly respected national organization, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, which has been at the forefront of youth development for over 150 years. We receive structure and guidance from our national organization but are governed autonomously by our local Board of Directors. 99.5% of fundraising dollars stay in our local community where we serve those who need us most.
