To inspire and empower all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.
We provide the highest quality environment to all children in need. We offer a positive and unique place with individual attention to every Club member in order to develop character by emphasizing integrity, respect, self esteem, responsibility, and appreciation of life. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Ada County is the premier Treasure Valley youth organization whose Board of Directors always ensures there are sufficient funds to carry out the mission of the Club. We have thousands of supporters helping thousands of kids to become responsible, honest, good people who give back to others. No child is turned away.
Respect: I see value in other people and other things
Responsibility: I take care of my things and myself
Integrity: I do the right thing without having to be asked.
The Ada County Boys & Girls Club has three priorities for every child who attends our club:
We want every child to graduate from high school with a plan for the future. Our members have resources such as getting help with homework in the education center, reading and writing clubs, help with computers and technology in the tech lab, and various art projects done in the tech lab, art room and teen center. We also have many volunteers from high schools and colleges that mentor our club members.
We want children to live healthy, active lifestyles and practice making good decisions for themselves and in our clubs. From the nutritious food we serve at snack and dinners, to sports games in our fields and gyms, to finding new ways to communicate their inner lives in the art and music rooms, to being surrounded by great mentors in our staff and volunteers.
Good Character and Citizenship:
Everyday in our clubs, children are taught about being respectful, responsible, and having Integrity in their lives and interactions with others. These are our expectations of of our children, our staff and our volunteers.
