Our Mission


The Mission of Boys and Girls Club of Abilene:

To enable and inspire all young people, especially those who need us most,

to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

 

Why we are special!

These Key characteristics define the essence of a Boys & Girls Club.  We believe these are critical in exerting a positive impact on a child’s life:

 

Dedicated Youth Facility…
Our clubs are a place – an actual neighborhood-based building – designed solely for youth programs and activities

 

Open Daily…
Open every day, after school, when kids have free time and need positive, productive outlets

 

Professional Staff…
Every Club has full-time, trained youth development professionals, providing positive role models and mentors. Volunteers provide key supplementary support

 

Available & Affordable to All Youth…
Clubs reach out to kids who cannot afford or may lack access to, other community programs
