Boys & Girls Clubs of Albany

Boys & Girls Clubs of Albany When school is out, the Clubs are in! We are a safe place to learn and grow and a place where great futures are started each and every day! #GreatFutures

For 55 years, Boys & Girls Clubs of Albany has provided a safe place for young people to learn and grow – all while having fun. Our Clubs are a place where great futures are started each and every day. Utilizing eight locations within Albany/Dougherty County, we offer holistic services and nationally recognized programs for young people ages 6 to 18 that address today’s most pressing issues during the critical out-of–school hours when youth are not in school or at home.

Our Jane Willson Unit members had a great time with Mrs. Florida Earth last week. Not only did they learn about our natural world, but they also learned about the seed that grows inside of us that we must continually nourish to be our best selves.
