We exist to prove every kid has what it takes.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Carolina (BGCCC) is a unique organization consisting of four Club facilities across Lee, Chatham, and Harnett Counties.
Our goal is to provide every child with the essential tools needed for a successful and bright future. Since 1995, the vision of Boys & Girls Clubs has grown and changed with the needs of our children. As the needs of our children and their families continue to change, so will the dynamics of our programs and services.
Every day, we strive to improve each child’s life by implementing self-esteem, courage, and positive values through all of our programs. Our youth who come to the Club receive tutoring, computer training, sports education, homework help, mentoring, and much more. Our youth gain confidence by developing a sense of usefulness and belonging.
To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
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.
Our History at BGCCC
Our History at BGCCC
In 1994, concerned community leaders met to address the increased teen pregnancy, school dropout, and juvenile justice crime rates for Lee County children.
They chose a proven national program to help battle the issues. Boys & Girls Clubs of America began working with them to develop a local organization. In 1995, St. Clair School was designated as the first site and the Club received a Charter in December for 124 members. In 1997, the Club moved from St. Clair to Jonesboro Elementary. It was at that time that the board leaders decided to construct a stand-alone facility. In 1999, the Club opened a 17,000 square foot unit at 1414 Bragg Street (currently the O.T. Sloan Unit).
In 2016, Lee County merged with Chatham County. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Sanford/Lee County and Eastern Piedmont changed their names to The Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Carolina. We now operate across four clubs in three counties in Central North Carolina.
