Who We Are

The Boys & Girls Club of Erie County is a safe place to learn and grow –all while having FUN!
It is the place where great futures are started each and every day. In our communities, boys and girls are left to find their own recreation and companionship in the streets while an increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision.
Young people need to know that someone cares about them. Boys & Girls Clubs of Erie County offer that and more. Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence.

Four key characteristics define the essence of the Boys & Girls Club of Erie County. All are critical in exerting positive impact on the life of a child:
