About Boys and Girls Clubs of Portland Metropolitan Area & Stand Together Week:
Boys and Girls Clubs’ mission is to empower all young people, especially those who need us most, to discover their full potential as caring, engaged, responsible community members. We provide after-school and full day care to youth ages 6-18. We use engaging programming centering around development through art education, activity, and character. We provide a safe place to develop healthy relationships and skills for future success and engagement.
Come to have fun! The unique Club environment creates an opportunity for youth who were afraid of the gym, or didn’t know how to play sports, to try something new. BGCP’s Athletics & Fitness initiatives increase children and teen’s daily physical activity, teaches them good nutrition, and helps them develop healthy relationships. Leadership Leagues infuse small group leadership and service into play, keeping kids active year-round. BGCP intentionally keeps Leagues affordable so that all children can participate. Leadership Leagues are focused on character development as opposed to merely competition and skill development. Our weekly focus on a different values such as respect and honesty broadens the focus of engagement so that youth feel successful on and off the court.
