BGC Canada -Support Young People

What a year 2022 has been!

Our Clubs are hard at work providing their communities with much needed services and programs. 

The summer months are especially a busy time for our Clubs. With kids out of school, our Clubs become the main focal point for youth during the summer. 

From programming to summer camps, our Clubs do it all. 

Your support is needed to help reach and support Canadain youth. 

We are the largest youth serving organization in Canada, and with your support, we can continue grow and reach as many communities as possible. 

We hope that join us on this journey to provide opportunties to all Candian youth.

Thank you for your continued support.

As we look back on 2021, we have a lot to celebrate.  It hasn’t been an easy year for any of us, or for our Clubs. On-going labour shortages, changes in COVID protocols, elections, handling controversy over vaccines, managing new programs and data requests.  We’ve done it all.  And we threw in a major change too, as we became BGC Canada. 

It’s this new banner, this new brand that makes all the difference.  Being BGC Canada is a significant commitment to our values – it’s about ensuring we represent those we serve.  That everyone is welcome through Club doors. 

It also showed that we were focused on business – that we needed to show progress, not just tread water in a crisis, but be committed to what we believe.

This year will come many changes, and many improvements, and your continued support is so important. In 2022 we have an ambitious plan for growth and renewal.  

We want you to continue to be a part of it.

What a month September as been. 

BGC Canada and our Clubs across the country have been busy assisting Canadian youth and families with a safe return to school. 

As we head into the colder months, and with COVID-19 restrictions, and lockdowns still impacting communities across the country, our services are in higher demand than ever. 

Our Clubs continue to see a large increase in demand for community services, while 42% of all Canadian charities say that they are facing demands that exceed their capacity to deliver.

Your support has helped thousands of Canadian children, youth, and families through one of the hardest periods of their lives. 

There are many important issues BGC canada is working daily to confront including equity diversity and inclusion, youth mental wellness, access to affordable childcare, and equitable pandemic recovery for communities and the non-profit sector.

 Your support continues to make a significant impact on the lives of Canadian youth.

What a year 2021 has been so far. 

As Canada's largest youth serving organization, we are moving forward with important work. 

Most recently, we have completed a rebrand  Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada has become BGC Canada. Not to be trendy. Not because it’s shorter or catchier. But because Clubs across the country open their doors to all kids and teens and we believe our name should reflect that.

Removing gender from our name modernizes the BGC brand and echoes the inclusive practices we’re known for without straying too far from our history and national brand awareness. It also embraces the fact that we serve young people of all ages, backgrounds, and identities.

New name, same legacy: 120+ years of creating opportunities for millions of Canadian kids and teens.

With the summer months upon us, and continued progression in the fight against COVID-19, our focus continues to be on be on supporting Canadian children, youth, and families across the country.

Thank you for your continued support and for making a difference in the lives of the over 200,000 young people we serve.

2020 was a year like no other. Thanks to your generosity, thousands of Canadian youth and families were able to recieve vital supports. 

As we move into 2021 with the pandemic still ongoing, our efforts continue. 

We are focused on supporting youth and families where they need it most. The current situation has left many struggling financially, mentally, and socially. 

We are ready to face 2021 and the challenges that come our way.  But the headwinds we are facing continue to be a gale – we have more work to do to deliver what’s needed.  This will not be easy work. 

Our programs, initiatives, and partnerships aim to improve and enrich the lives of youth and families. 

in 2021 your support can make a difference.
