Our humble beginnings

 

Since 1969, Boys & Girls Clubs of Edinburg Rio Grande Valley has been in the forefront of youth development; with the mission to provide opportunity to all youth in a positive caring environment to enable them to become productive, responsible, influential citizens. Our organization serves 18,066 youth through membership and community outreach, helping them grow into healthy, productive, successful young people prepared to achieve great futures.

 

We are dedicated to ensuring that our community's youth have greater access to quality programs and services that will enhance their lives and shape their futures.

 

Today, Edinburg & surrounding community kids are in crisis.  Two out of 5 kids live in poverty, one out of 5 teens becomes pregnant, and one out of 5 kids in the City of Edinburg won’t graduate from high school on time.  Boys & Girls Clubs of Edinburg RGV is the only organization with the reach, strength and proven track record to lead a collaborative initiative to transform an entire generation. 

 

Boys & Girls Clubs in Edinburg serves 5,980 registered members annually.  There is over 27,000 youth still in need. 

 

With your help, Boys & Girls Clubs of Edinburg RGV has an unprecedented opportunity to strengthen our impact and reach more kids, more often.  Our 5 year campaign goals are bold:  help increase the high school graduation rate by 5%, help cut the teen pregnancy rate by 10%, and raise $4 million to construct a Teen Innovation Center and to sustain and strengthen Boys & Girls Clubs.  No organization, individual or school system can accomplish this agenda alone.  Together, we can transform an entire generation. 

   

Join us in creating Great Futures for thousands more of Edinburg & surrounding community youth by investing as a sponsor. 

 

Warmly,

BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS EDINBURG RGV
