Inspiring tomorrow’s leaders
Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Gaston works to help youth of all backgrounds develop the qualities needed to become responsible citizens and leaders. The Clubs serve residents of Gaston County between ages 6 and 18.
BGC’s mission is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.
The program provides the best care for the youth of Gaston County by helping the latchkey child become more successful and goal-oriented. Our outcomes are to improve academic performance, decrease drop-out rates, lower the number of juvenile crime, prevent teen pregnancy and to inspire our Club members to be leaders of the future.
Overall, 67% of our members come from single-parent/grandparent households and 94% receive free or reduced lunch at school. BGC Gaston provides programming for ten Title 1 elementary schools and five Title 1 middle schools, in addition to two other elementary schools and three other high schools.
