Imagine the moment in your life when you discovered a passion or explored an opportunity. The time your eyes were opened to a world of possibilities. The instant the lightbulb turned on and the vision of your future became clear.
The local youth found inside the Boys & Girls Clubs of Sarasota and DeSoto Counties are not unlike our younger selves – full of hope, optimism and potential. And with your help, our Club members can experience that moment every day at one of our six Club locations.
We invite you to See Yourself Here and recognize the significant impact your support can have on a child’s life.
The leaders of tomorrow are at Boys & Girls Clubs of Sarasota and DeSoto Counties today. They’re a reflection of our community’s dedication to fostering a diverse workforce, encouraging active citizenship and creating a brighter future.
At Boys & Girls Clubs, children and teens can realize their full potential through life-changing programs such as academic enrichment, arts education and leadership development. With guidance from our devoted team of adult mentors, youth can hone critical skills, build their resumes, learn a new trade and give back to our community.
We’re looking for caring individuals like you, who see and believe in our Club members’ potential, to join us and ensure we continue providing the youth who need us the most with endless opportunities to achieve greatness.
