Who We Are

Boys & Girls Club of York County strives to serve the kids who need us the most by providing them with gateways to Great Futures.


Who We Are


The mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of York County (BGCYC) is to inspire and enable young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens


The vision of the Boys & Girls Clubs of York County is to provide a world-class Club experience that assures success is within reach of every young person who enters our doors, with all members on track to graduate from high school with a plan for the future, demonstrating good character and citizenship, and living a healthy lifestyle.


In 1992 BGCYC opened the doors and began serving youth in our first two Clubs which opened in space provided by the Housing Authority of Fort Mill and York, SC. This effort was led by concerned local citizens. Through their leadership and dedicated service, the Clubs received an operation charter from the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Currently there are seven Clubs in operation throughout York County serving hundreds of children and teens annually. Boys & Girls Clubs of York County is a registered IRS 501(c)3 charity receiving funding from contributions, membership fees, special events, grants and United Way of York County.


Children need to grow up with the opportunity to make a successful life for themselves and the ability to be a positive contributor to their world. To do this requires being educated, being healthy, and understanding how to interact whit those around them as both an informed follower and a capable leader. Strategically following our youth development model, the Boys & Girls Clubs of York County provides academic enhancement, instruction in making healthy lifestyle choices, and in developing good character and good citizenship. Members are given the opportunity to have a positive sense of belonging, usefulness, influence, and competence.
