Great Futures Start Here

Our Formula for Impact ensures Academic Success, Good Character, & Healthy Lifestyles.

Our 26 sites, covering 75 miles from Manassas to Germantown, serve as safe havens for our members. Open when schools are not, our Clubs provide a safe and fun alternative to being home alone or on the street. BGCGW serves nearly 12,000 youth annually through regular Club membership and widespread community outreach.  Youth attend the Clubs for activities, to see their friends, and to spend time with positive and encouraging adults.

We welcome every child for a nominal annual membership fee, but will not turn any child away for inability to pay.

Formula for Impact


We serve the Greater Washington area’s kids through five key elements for positive youth development, an adopted strategy created by our National Headquarters. This serves as a roadmap for regional Clubs to help ensure that each one of our members achieve our priority outcomes of Academic Success, Good Character and Citizenship, and Healthy Lifestyles. It also incorporates high-yield learning activities, targeted programs and regular attendance. At all of our BGCGW sites we incorporate this model to achieve success.
