What We Do

In every community, boys and girls are left to find their own recreation and companionship in the streets. An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision. Young people need to know that someone cares about them. Boys & Girls Clubs offer that and more. Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence. Boys & Girls Clubs are a safe place to learn and grow -- all while having fun. It is truly The Positive Place For Kids. We are instrumental in helping our Club members make the right decisions about their life. Our goal is to provide every child with the essential tools needed for a successful and bright future. For over 50 years, the vision of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Topeka has grown and changed with the needs of our children. As the needs of our children and their families continue to change, so will the dynamics of our programs and services. We serve over 4,200 children with our 6 units. Our number served has doubled over the last 6 years! Every day, Boys & Girls Clubs strive to improve each child's life by implementing self-esteem, courage, and positive values through all of the educational programs. Our youth come to the Boys & Girls Clubs to receive tutoring, computer training, sports education, homework help, and mentoring. Our youth gain confidence by developing a sense of usefulness and belonging.
