Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania is a unique organization consisting of 14 Clubhouses and our Career Works Center with six new locations opening fall 2020. We currently operate in Allegheny and Somerset Counties. Seven of our Clubhouses are school-based sites and seven are stand-alone facilities. We also offer partner programs inside of school-districts and several other community centers across the Pittsburgh Metro and have expansion plans for surrounding counties. Through our programs, services and outreach we serve 12,000+ youth ages 4-18, making us one of the largest comprehensive after school/ youth services provider in our region. Our goal is to provide every young person with the essential tools needed for a successful and bright future by doing whatever it takes to activate and advance their potential.
Since 1888, when we were founded, the vision of Boys & Girls Clubs has grown and changed with the needs of our youth. As the needs of our youth and their families continue to change, so will the dynamics of our programs and services. In recent years, we have grown our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and Career Works (teen workforce development) programs and expanded into school-based sites during the day through our Healthy Lifestyles program and before/after school programs in partnership with schools and districts.
Every day, Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania strive to improve each young person’s life by growing self-esteem, academic abilities, professional skills, courage, and positive values through all of our programs; we have five core program areas. Several thousand youth come to our Clubhouses or participate in our programs every year to receive tutoring and homework help, technical training, sports, participate in the Pirates RBI Program, build healthy lifestyles, build their arts skills, engage in fun and enriching summer programming, get ready for life after high school, or just come to a safe place to be with friends. Our youth gain confidence by developing a sense of competence, usefulness, positive influence and belonging within safe spaces.
