Established in 1930, the Boys & Girls Club of Dayton (BGCD) provides daily afterschool and all day summer programs to children ages 5 to 18, getting them off the streets during the most dangerous time of the day, between 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Each year BGCD provides approximately 600 Montgomery County youth with a safe and positive place to learn and grow. At the Boys & Girls Club, children can spend their non-school hours surrounded by caring adults and engaged in enriching, age appropriate youth development activities. Club members have access to an array of programs in the core areas of Academic Success, Civic & Social Engagement, and Healthy Lifestyles. Membership fees are low and affordable, and afterschool participation includes a nutritious meal served daily. BGCD is part of the national federation of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, which includes some 4,000 Club locations in the 50 states, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and U.S. military bases world wide serving 4.2 million youth annually. This Dayton Original is a great asset to our community!
