Executive Directors Message

Welcome to the Boys & Girls Club of Decatur. We hope that your child had a great summer. As we enter into a new school year, we are excited to be able to offer our Fall Program, open for kids ages 7-18yrs old. Membership to the Club is only $1. That’s right $1. During the 2016-17 school year, the Club saw 95% of its members promoted to the next grade level.

The Club had more than 100 members attend daily, which is contributed to the kids being provided meals every Tuesday and Friday. This year the Club served more than 2500 healthy snacks to members after school, while also providing healthy snacks and program initiatives to ensure our kids are making healthier life choices.

This year the Club achieved another major milestone. The Club has been housed in its current facility on 859 N. Jasper for more than 35 years. With the help of the local Decatur Community, we were able to do $20,000 dollars worth of renovations to our Teen Room area. The Decatur Community and your kids should be sure to enjoy the new updates for many years to come.

Our goal at the Club is to build great leaders for our Decatur Community, while helping young people reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens. 

We at the club believe that all young people can be developed; they just need opportunities and expectations to succeed.

The Boys & Girls Club Provides:

  • A safe place to learn and grow……
  • Ongoing relationships with caring, adult professionals……
  • Life enhancing programs and learning opportunities…..
  • Hope & opportunity
