When school's out, Clubs are in. ￼
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Annapolis & Anne Arundel County ensures success is within reach for every youth in Anne Arundel County. Our six Clubhouses serve young people from the ages of 6 to 18 during the critical Out-of-School Time. When the after-school bell rings, Club doors open to a world of possibilities. It is a time to transform kids’ lives, and better the future of America.
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!

The Legacy of Don and Sandy Pyle
Representatives from The Don and Sandy Pyle Charity Foundation presented Steve Cornette, CEO of BGCAA, with a donation of $11,250 to support the work of the local Boys & Girls Clubs. The Foundation was established on behalf of Don, Sandy and their four cherished grandchildren who tragically lost their lives in the Annapolis Mansion Fire this past January. Victor Roy and Stacey Alviani (pictured) were among many volunteers who helped run the First Annual Charity Golf Tournament in June to raise funds for several local nonprofits as a way of continuing the legacy of the Pyle family.
