Boys & Girls Clubs of the Coastal Bend was founded in 1957. Today, we serve 3,366 youth annually through our after-school program, summer camps, sports leagues, and community events at two traditional locations: the Greenwood Unit in Corpus Christi and the Robstown Unit. In May 2017, we opened our first on-school site location at London Elementary.

BGCCB serves youth ages 6-18 years old and is aligned with Boys & Girls Club's America's Formula For Impact to ensure that all young people who walk through our doors are prepared for academic success, demonstrating good character & citizenship, and living healthy lifestyles.

The support that we receive allows us to achieve the following outcomes in our three priority outcomes with our youth -
• ACADEMIC SUCCESS - 98% of Club Members stayed in school and successfully progressed to the next grade level.
• GOOD CHARACTER & CITIZENSHIP - Club Members completed OVER 200 hours of community service
• HEALTHY LIFESTYLES - 89% of Club Members increased their knowledge in living healthy lifestyles & over 1,000 participated in our sports leagues.
• Most of all, follow their DREAMS and REACH THEIR FULL-POTENTIAL

Community support helps us continue to expand, and more importantly sustain our after-school and summer programs at low to no-cost, to the youth and families who need us most. On behalf of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Coastal Bend and the over 3,300 youth we serve annually, we are proud to be a part of the Coastal Bend community that makes a difference, where GREAT FUTURES START HERE.
"The Club is where I found my voice."
-Justine V., 2018 Youth of the Year

"Being a member of the Boys & Girls Clubs has taught me the importance of team work and building healthy relationships. The Club has allowed me to express myself and dream big. Since I was in the 4th grade, I have loved dance. The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Coastal Bend has not only given me the stage to perform, but they have given me a platform to inspire others to dance. My brothers and I have been members at the Club for the last six years and we all really appreciate the support, structure, and stability the Club provides."
-Renya G., 14 yrs.

"The Club saved my life". That is what I think of when I remember the Boys & Girls Club as a Club kid. Now as a staff, I am grateful that I am able to work and give back to an organization that made such a positive impact in my life.
-Valerie B., Club Staff
