The Louis L. Valentine Boys & Girls Club of Chicago services over 1,300 members annually, 180 members daily and is the largest & most diverse Club of all 18 sites citywide. The Club provides hope, stability, and opportunity for youth in 3 areas of development: Good Character & Leadership, Healthy Lifestyles & Academic Success.
The Club is a safe haven during those critical after-school hours and offers a variety of activities: After School Program, Day Camp, Digital Arts, SMART Prevention Programs, Aquatics, and Dance. Program staff build one-on-one relationships with youth and provide fun, age-appropriate, well rounded experiences for members to find their “voice” in the world.
Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago is making a difference in young people’s lives – one child at a time.
It costs $1,000 per year to serve one child with all of Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago’s programs and services.
Yet, we keep membership fees affordable at $20 per year so all children, no matter their circumstances, can be a Club member.
