The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Lowcountry is a youth development organization that serves youth ages
6-18 in Beaufort and Jasper Counties. Our mission is — “To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.’ The Boys & Girls Clubs core programs engage young people in activities with adults, peers, and family members that enable them to reach their full potential. Based on the interests and needs of boys and
girls we serve, Clubs offer diverse program activities in five areas: 1) Character and Leadership
Development; 2) Education and Career Development; 3) Health and Life Skills; 4) The Arts; and 5) Sports, Fitness and Recreation. Clubs are neighborhood and building centered that provide a safe, affordable place for youth during non-school hours and in the summer. Clubs are led by paid, trained
youth development professionals along with caring adult volunteers. Established in 1986, the Clubs served nearly 2300 members at six Club locations in 2014.
