The Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Maryland is a place designed solely for youth programs and activities. Strategic community partnerships and collaborations enhance enrichment opportunities for children ages 6 to 18 years old.
Every Club has trained youth development professionals and volunteers who are positive role models and mentors. Adults 18 years or older are required to submit to a background check and complete mandatory local and national youth-focused training.
BGCSM has a lineup of tested and proven nationally recognized programs that address today's most pressing youth issues, teaching young people the skills they need to succeed in life. The Club offers programs in five core areas: CHARACTER & LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT, EDUCATION & CAREER DEVELOPMENT, THE ARTS, HEALTH & LIFE SKILLS, and SPORTS, FITNESS & RECREATION.
None of this is possible without the support of our community. Whether it is a gift of time, talent or treasure from individuals, small businesses or larger corporations, all are vital in keeping the doors open and lights on for a safe and supervised place where children thrive during out-of-school time.
