About Us

Our Mission: To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. 


For 25 years, Boys & Girls Club of Southeast Alabama has been in the forefront of youth development, working with young people from disadvantaged economic, social and family circumstances. The Boys & Girls Club of Southeast Alabama actively seeks to enrich the lives of girls and boys whom other youth agencies have difficulty in reaching. We are dedicated to ensuring that our community’s  youngsters have access to quality programs and services that will enhance their lives and shape their futures.

The Boys & Girls Club of Southeast Alabama is part of a nationwide affiliation of local, autonomous organizations and Boys & Girls Clubs of America working to help youth of all backgrounds develop the qualities needed to become responsible citizens and leaders. It is facility-based and offers daily access to a broad range of programs in five core program areas: Character and Leadership Development; Education and Career Development; Health and Life Skills; The Arts; and Sports, Fitness and Recreation.  

Awards

Our programs have taken regional awards each year for the past 11 years, including Best Overall Program (6 time recipient) , Sports, Fitness & Recreation Program (5 time recipient), Arts (4 time recipient), Health & Life skills (3 time recipient) and Education & Career Development  (2 time recipient).  Our Director and Executive Assistant are also regional award winners. Our Board of Directors has also won  the Board Performance Award for the State of Alabama twice.  Our Club received the 2012 Gateway Award (For highest increase in Average Daily Attendance) and the Club Advocacy Champion Award in 2019.

With the 2014 expansion of our main Club, we serve more of our local youth than ever before, and see them into young adulthood in a safe, caring environment.
