About the Texas Alliance of Boys & Girls Clubs


In 1999, the Texas Alliance of Boys & Girls Clubs was established to enable Boys & Girls Club organizations from across the state to come together as one "Movement” to effectively and efficiently work with public and private partners to address the state’s most pressing youth issues. 
For more than 100 years, Boys & Girls Clubs in Texas have been in the forefront of youth development, working with young people from disadvantaged economic, social and family circumstances. The Boys & Girls Clubs have actively sought to enrich the lives of girls and boys whom other youth agencies have had difficulty in reaching. We are dedicated to ensuring that Texas’ disadvantaged youngsters have greater access to quality programs and services that will enhance their lives and shape their futures.
The mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as responsible, productive and caring citizens. 
In a world that has never seemed more threatening and devoid of promise for a disproportionate number of America’s children, the Boys & Girls Clubs in Texas provide a tangible measure of hope. The Clubs offer young people what they need and want most: adults who respect and listen to them; a safe environment where they can have fun and be themselves; and interesting, constructive activities that channel youthful energy into challenging pursuits.
A youth development strategy underlies all Boys & Girls Club programs and fosters a sense of belonging, competence, usefulness and influence that builds self-confidence and self-esteem. 
The Boys & Girls Clubs in Texas are 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. The Clubs are facility-based, employ hundreds of Youth Development Professionals who are complimented by thousands of part-time staff and volunteers, and offer 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.
Today, more than 345,900 boys and girls at risk and in need are taking advantage of the programs, activities and services provided by the Boys & Girls Clubs in 91 Texas counties. They benefit from trained, caring professional staff and volunteers who help young people take control of their lives, envision productive futures, and reach their goals.
