Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Richmond

Richmond VA 23228
Mission Statement

Our mission is to empower young people, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to succeed in life.

BGCMR has five Clubs in four neighborhoods that are permeated by poverty. Modeled on nationally tested programs, our Clubs start with capturing the attention of our members who are 6 to 18 years old. Then we improve behavior and members’ personal expectations and goals through intentional but informal guidance of trained staff members. To this we add an array of high quality programs and activities. Youth build skills that enable them to climb out of poverty through, higher education and good-paying jobs.

We operate Clubs where the concentration of youth living in disadvantaged circumstances is highest: Richmond's Northside (Providence Park), Southside (Bainbridge), East End and in Petersburg. Our Clubs work with others in the community to create a culture where success is expected from all youth, regardless of their membership in the Club.

Impact

 

  • 5,715  children’s lives were touched this year with membership of 3,018 and an additional 2,697 young people impacted through outreach and collaborative activities. Each day, an average of 1,013 children between the ages of 6 and 18 spend time at a Club.
  • Boys & Girls Clubs are serving children most in need: 76% of members live in single parent households and 72% live in homes with a household income of less than $25,000.
  • Clubs are child-centered and fun, providing a place for children to form lasting relationships with caring adults. Our caring, consistent staff members are the reason children return day after day.
  • 83% of our children choose to spend 3 or more days each week at a Club
  • This year alone, Boys & Girls Clubs collaborated with more than 40 different not for profit organizations and corporations, providing children with the varied opportunities to learn and grow.

 

Needs

Currently, 78% of members have household incomes under $40,000 (with 72% under $25,000). Our neighborhoods are riddled with poverty traps. Generational poverty discourages individual dreams. In some cases, our kids are expected to fail based primarily on their zip code. These realities limit our kids’ imaginations and their definition of success.

Instability surrounding them, our young people are vulnerable at best. And at worst, they’re a target. Crimes like drug trafficking, prostitution, and theft, as well as bullying and intimidation are daily occurrences. They happen in our kids’ back yards, at birthday parties and in the aisles of their corner store.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Richmond is recognized throughout metro Richmond for our availability to young people in disadvantaged circumstances. We are open more hours, more holidays, in more locations and in more challenging neighborhoods than any organization in the community.

Simply put, we must be the best for our kids. They deserve it.

Background

From our founding to now, we have been in the business of bringing good people together to help kids in disadvantaged circumstances. With the backing of several of Richmond’s longtime philanthropic families, BGCMR opened its doors in the Fan District in 1954. We are, above all else, a people-centered organization seeking to bring together the best resources available in our community to meet our members’ evolving needs at every turn.

Every child has a home at the Club, no matter what his or her story is. This creed has meant different things at different times; today, our open door policy sets us apart from places that require good behavior from day one or look for highly engaged families.

BGCMR staff, members and supporters are from diverse backgrounds and yet have one thing in common: a passionate desire to do the most with what they’re given. This unbridled optimism builds a culture that transforms neighborhoods as our kids’ exceed expectations.

CEO Statement

From our dedicated Board of Directors and Staff to the generous community of leaders who believe in our work, we have the right people connecting kids who need us most to life-changing opportunity. Our mission is fueled by their inspiring efforts, all of which make the Clubs the unique place that it is: a place that never asks you to be perfect. We just ask you to do better every day.

Collaborations

Collaborations with private, public and government agencies are very important to BGCMR. Last year alone, we had significant collaborative relationships with more than 40 organizations. From mentoring, to adopting families during the holidays, to The Central Virginia Foodbank's Kids Café that provides more than 900 hot meals daily to our children, we constantly look for collaborative opportunities that provide a diversity of experiences and meet multiple needs. These collaborations enrich our programs and provide our youth with opportunities and exposure that may not otherwise be available to them.

 

Programs
Description

Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Richmond empowers young people, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to succeed in life.

Staff members help meet the needs that kids have to be safe, both physically and emotionally, and to develop mentoring relationships with caring adults. We provide programs that build measurable skills in three areas: Academic Achievement, Employability and Healthy Lifestyles and Relationships.

On that foundation, we implement various programs and activities that build true self-esteem and confidence, which encourages more good choices. Along with structured learning, our programs offer informal guidance opportunities through which useful social skills and positive attitudes are developed.

Programs operate during the school year from 2 p.m. – 8 p.m. and during the summer from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.
