BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS OF SARASOTA COUNTY believes every child is destined for greatness. With support from the community, we’ve provided children and teens with the knowledge and tools they need to become the next generation of community leaders since 1970. When young people have access to award-winning educational, developmental and recreational programs, they become equipped with the skills and confidence to successfully pursue their passions and contribute to the world around them. Inside our Clubs, thousands of youth are charting their path to greatness each day while building lasting friendships, connecting with mentors and participating in enriching programs that they may not otherwise have the chance to experience. Whether Club members are just starting their academic journeys as kindergartners or applying to college or vocational centers as high school seniors, our organization provides children and teens with a wide selection of programs designed to meet their unique needs, explore their interests and discover their talent. Together, we can ensure our community’s future generations realize their greatness at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Sarasota County for another 50 years.
