What is it? The Boys & Girls Clubs of Thurston County provide safe places for youth within communities to learn, grow and reach their full potential through life enhancing programs; character development experiences; hope; and opportunity. They provide a wealth of programs and activities to prepare kids and teens for real-world success. They believe in focusing on Academic Success, Good Character & Citizenship, and Healthy Lifestyles. The youth they serve will be better prepared to graduate from high school, go onto college, and thrive as adults.
The idea of bringing Boys & Girls Clubs to Thurston County (BGCTC) originated in the late 1990s through a vision and dream held by a group of community leaders. Boys & Girls Clubs of Thurston County will be celebrating 20 years of service in the fall of 2021.
