The Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland will reach thousands of youth and provide them with the guidance they so desperately need. Each child will be instilled with a sense of belonging, usefulness, competency & influence through our life-saving programs. Kids turn to the Club for hot meals through our Kids Cafe and are involved in free counseling through our Youth & Family Services program. In our Literacy Center, thousands of kids, many of whom have dyslexia, are exploring new ways to learn.


By providing life-saving programs, young people of all backgrounds will develop the qualities needed to become responsible citizens and leaders of our community.

Long-Term Impact

The project will allow more than 13,000 young people, especially those who needs us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
