Boys and Girls Club Day for Kids takes place on the third Saturday in September. The day celebrates children with fun-filled and exciting activities.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) is a national nonprofit organization that provides after-school programs and services to young people in the United States. The organization was founded in 1860 and has since grown to include more than 4,700 Clubs in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and military bases around the world.

BGCA's mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need it most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible citizens. The organization provides a safe and positive environment for children and teens to participate in a variety of programs and activities that promote academic success, healthy lifestyles, and character and leadership development.

Some of the programs and services offered by BGCA include homework help, tutoring, career exploration, sports and recreation, arts and crafts, and leadership development. The organization also partners with local schools and community organizations to provide additional support and resources for young people.

BGCA is supported by a network of volunteers, donors, and corporate sponsors who are committed to improving the lives of young people.

Boys & Girls Clubs of America had its beginnings in 1860 with four women in Hartford, Connecticut - Mary Goodwin, Alice Goodwin, Elizabeth Hammersley and Louisa Bushnell. Believing that boys who roamed the streets should have a positive alternative, they organized the first Club. With character development as the cornerstone of the experience, the Club focused on capturing boys interests, improving their behavior and increasing their personal expectations and goals. A cause was born.
