Serving our youth


Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Richmond develops young people who are “life-ready” and empowered to use their voices.

Since 1953, we have committed to helping young people in Richmond and Petersburg thrive both in and out of school. Through innovative programs and a diverse and dedicated staff, we provide a safe, educational and welcoming space for students in our community.

With your incredible trust, Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Richmond continues to create environments for young people to thrive and for community members to come together.



Supporting teens in metro Richmond

Thanks to your generous support of the Create New Statistics Campaign, we can continue our work developing teenagers who are ready for life beyond high school.

Through intensive mentorship programs, such as Ready2Win, and the planned construction of a Teen Center, we are devoted to making a lasting difference in the lives of high school students in our community.
