Learn. Care. Act. Be Great.

Boys & Girls Club of Lake County is a safe place for youth, ages 6 – 18, to learn and grow – all while having fun. It is the place where great futures start each and every day.

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 Club of Lake County offers 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.

Our Mission

To inspire all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible citizens.

Be Great

Boys & Girls Club of Lake County believes every child has the potential to BE GREAT. In support of this strong conviction, we strive to build caring and responsible citizens. The Boys & Girls Club of Lake County family – a community of staff, volunteers, parents, youth and supporters – work together to create a positive place, full of hope and opportunity, for every child.
