In every community, boys and girls are left to find their own recreation and companionship when they are not in school. An increasing number of children are at home with no adult supervision. Young people need to know that someone cares about them.

The B&G Clubs of Rutherford County offer that and more. Club programs promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence.

Just the Facts

B&G Clubs:

An Ounce of Prevention

It takes money to run our B&G Clubs-on average about $200 per youth per year. But consider the alternative: keeping a young adult in jail costs taxpayers anywhere from $25,000 to $75,000 per year. B&G Clubs are a proven delinquency prevention program, as well as one of the best bargains in America.

Number One

In its 1999 "Philanthropy 400" report, The Chronicle of Philanthropy ranked the B&G Club Movement No. 1 among youth organizations for the sixth consecutive year, and No. 8 among all non-profit organizations.
