For 21 years, Boys & Girls Club of Southeast Alabama has been in the forefront of youth development, working with young people from disadvantaged economic, social and family circumstances. The Boys & Girls Club of Southeast Alabama actively seeks to enrich the lives of girls and boys whom other youth agencies have difficulty in reaching. We are dedicated to ensuring that our community’s youngsters have access to quality programs and services that will enhance their lives and shape their futures.
The Boys & Girls Club of Southeast Alabama is part of a nationwide affiliation of local, autonomous organizations and Boys & Girls Clubs of America working to help youth of all backgrounds develop the qualities needed to become responsible citizens and leaders. It is facility-based and offers daily access to a broad range of programs in five core program areas: Character and Leadership Development; Education and Career Development; Health and Life Skills; The Arts; and Sports, Fitness and Recreation.
Our programs have taken regional awards in 4 of the last 5 years, including Best Overall Program, Sports, Fitness & Recreation Program, and Best Education & Career Development Program. Our Director, Program Director, and Executive Assistant are also regional award winners for 2014, 2012, and 2011, respectively.
With the 2014 expansion of our main Club, we serve more of our local youth than ever before, and see them into young adulthood in a safe, caring environment.
