Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas provides thousands of Greater Dallas youth with a safe place to go after school, a hot meal for dinner, help with homework, and a wide range of age-appropriate, relevant, and effective programs that help them succeed in the classroom and beyond.

BGCD makes sure that young students have a solid foundation in school through the AECE literacy program catching up first-graders who are behind on reading before third grade. Or through programs like SMART Girls and Passport to Manhood, pre-teens and teenagers are participating in intimate group discussions facilitated by a caring adult as they tackle issues of bullying, self-esteem, and much more. 

With many of BGCD's teens preparing to be first-generation college students, we offer a college-ready program that not only pairs each teen with a Junior League of Dallas mentor, but assists them with the full college admissions process, applying for financial aid and we even provide an SAT/ACT prep course that's free to our Club members. Beyond our programs, our greatest impact is stemmed from providing youth with a caring and positive relationship with an adult mentor. Our impact equates to more youth in low-income communities graduating from high school with a plan and the skills and resources they need to put it to action.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, BGCD has adapted and changed our strategy to be there for kids who need us most. Initially, BGCD distributed food to the community and moved activities online to keep kids engaged at home. Then, when it was safe to do so, we reopened to provide much needed child care to parents returning to work. As the school year starts again, BGCD will continue to adapt programming to help youth bounce back from the effects of distanced learning and other challenges presented by the pandemic.


Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas enables all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.


Our critical need is unrestricted financial support to fund our life-changing programs and services. We know that making financial decisions this year may be tough, but kids need the support of the Boys & Girls Clubs and our trusted staff right now more than ever. The Club is a safe, nurturing beacon of hope. Give and help us with our work. Great Futures Start Here!
