Boys and Girls Club- Native Services
Clubs on Native Lands
Today, Boys & Girls Clubs is the largest Native youth-serving agency in the nation, reaching about 90,000 Native youth in American Indian, Alaska Native, American Samoan, and Hawaiian tribal communities. 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.

First Down introduces kids and parents to the game of football in a fun, free and friendly format • Kids learn the basics of football such as running, jumping, passing and catching in a no-pressure, non-intimidating setting.
We had a great day with all the kids! Thanks for bringing your kids down to play! We hope to do this again soon!
Marimn Health would like to extend a huge thank you to Pitch in For Baseball & Softball for awarding us an equipment grant for our 2019 Baseball Season. They provided us with gently used bats, brand new catcher’s set, helmets, new baseballs, and new tee-ball/youth baseball mitts! With their help, we were able to provide more comfortably fitting helmets, better gloves for some of our youth, more suitable baseball bat sizes, provide equipment for our players – sparing our parents some additional expenses and generating more excitement during games thanks to our kids wanting to show off the new gear!
