Formed in 1887, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee (B&GCGM) is the city’s largest neighborhood-based youth guidance organization and a seminal leader in the provision of protective factors for Milwaukee’s at-risk youth. The B&GCGM is a youth guidance organization dedicated to promoting health, social, educational, vocational, cultural, character, and leadership development. It aims to help young people improve their lives by building self-esteem, values, and skills during critical periods of growth. The Club’s primary purpose is to have a positive impact on the lives of Milwaukee’s youth.
