With nearly 200 Clubs, Boys & Girls Clubs provide Native young people with a variety of culturally relevant, life-enhancing programs every year.

To fulfill the needs of Native youth, BGCA’s successful programs were adapted and modified to integrate Native culture to cause an impact on the lives of children and teens that attend Clubs in Native communities. While honoring Native traditions, the Native Boys & Girls Clubs serve to promote growth and development that is contrary to the risk factors these youth face.
