Who We Are

Our mission

To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

OUR VISION

Board, staff, and community making a future where every kid has the tools and environment to laugh, learn, grow.... and boldly reach for their dreams.

Boys & Girls Clubs give kids a place to call their own, where they can have fun, get a hot meal, be creative, be a part of a team, get help with homework...or just hang out with friends. We offer safe, fun, inclusive, and inspiring places that kids and their families count on — every day.

Pierce, Kitsap and Mason counties have nine locations with open doors that offer spaces for children and teens to learn, create, and attain their best in academics, athletics, and more.

Keeping Kids Safe

The safety and well-being of the children we serve is our highest priority.

All employees and volunteers undergo a thorough background check and training before they work at our Clubs. Our policies set boundaries for staff and volunteers to ensure the safety of our kids. These policies and procedures are reviewed regularly by an internal safety committee and evaluated using the national best practices of Boys & Girls Clubs of America, as well as Praesidium, a national leader in youth safety.

Our staff and volunteers are trained to support any child or adult who comes forward with concerns about misconduct and to identify signs of abuse and to report it.
