The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Flint is a safe place to learn, grow and have fun!

It is truly the positive place for kids.

The Club began programming in 2004 at the Averill Unit to serve youth, between the ages of 7 to 17, in Flint and the surrounding areas. Open after school, in the summer, and for occasional weekend events, the Club offers many positive and fun programs to its over 1,700 members. The Club serves around 150 kids per day after school and 300 per day in the summer.

In 2016, a partnership was formed with the Flint Central Church of the Nazarene to expand programming to the Peak Site. This program operated during the summer for three years. In January 2019, the Boys & Girls Clubs grew the program to serve youth after school.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Flint gives children an opportunity to elevate themselves in the community. The building-centered effort provides a safe haven for them. Programs and services are designed to benefit children socially, physically, economically, and educationally. The Clubs establish a foundation for future successes, and guide youth to a bright future for themselves, their communities, and the world.
