Thank you for your interest in having your child become a member at your local Club. Wake County’s Boys & Girls Clubs is a large Boys & Girls Club organization in the state and one of the 100 largest in America. Seven clubs throughout the county serve over 4,700 Club members each year.
Our youth development strategy helps give children a sense of belonging, competence, usefulness, and influence. Our Clubs provided over 300,000 hours of homework help, tutoring, and academic support this year and members also participated in over 421,000 hours of healthy lifestyle programs.
The Mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs is: “To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens” and the Clubs focus on three key areas:
1) Academic Success.
2) Good Character and Citizenship.
3) Healthy Lifestyles.
Before a child can become a member, three things should happen:
1) The child should have celebrated his or her SIXTH BIRTHDAY.
2) A parent or guardian of the child should fill out an application and personally turn it at the Club of choice. Please visit the “Our Clubs” section of this website for directions and contact information for the Club nearest you.
3) A parent or guardian should attend an orientation session at the selected Club prior to the child being granted “member” status. Again, please contact your local club for details.
