When school's out, Clubs are in. 
In every community, boys and girls are left to find their own recreation and companionship after school. An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision, or out on the street when school is out. Young people need to know that someone cares about them.  Boys & Girls Clubs offer 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. 

Founded in 1988 BGCAA serves more than 2,200 youth a year from the ages of 6 to 18 in six full-service Clubs in Anne Arundel County. Clubs are open every day after school and during school holidays, when youth most need productive outlets and a safe place to learn and grow. In addition each of the six locations offers Summer Camp for youth from the ages of 6 to 12.  

Our mission is to  inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.   BGCAA is dedicated to providing a world-class Club experience that assures success is within reach of every young person who walks through our doors. We strive to help all members stay on track to graduate from high school with a plan for the future, while demonstrating good character and citizenship, and living a healthy lifestyle.

Boys & Girls Clubs are a safe place to learn and grow – all while having fun. When School's out, Clubs are in!

In September, Club members from the Freetown Village Club participated in a three day art project and created unique multi-media masterpieces. Two club members were selected for their originality and creativity as ‘spotlight artists’  and their artwork was made into golf awards for sponsor's of the 2014 Golf Tournament.  Jasmine, age 9, created the ‘Shine’ piece and Janai, age 6,  created the ‘Believe’ .
