Changing Lives

For more than 50 years, Boys & Girls Clubs of the Cedar Valley has focused on providing program opportunities to nurture the youth of the community. At our facilities children can trust that they:

  • Will find adults who will respect and listen to them
  • Have a safe environment to have fun and be themselves
  • Experience constructive activities to channel their energy into challenging pursuits

As the challenges facing the young people of our communities change, our staff remains as dedicated as ever to provide them with constructive programming that will make them more responsible. Members of our clubs tend to achieve better academic grades, miss fewer days of school and display more positive behavior.
