What makes the after-school care that Boys & Girls Clubs of Tucson (BGCT) provides so appealing for parents and caretakers of Tucson’s valuable youth? Every one of our six Clubhouses offers a safe, positive, and nurturing environment where tomorrow’s future doctors, entrepreneurs, artists, and scientists can develop talents essential to success in life.
From empowering mental health to blossoming in a wide variety of skills including budgeting, academic success, painting, and computer science, we are constantly finding ways to nurture the growth of every youth we serve.
Our programs are affordable, and we offer scholarships for any parent who cannot afford the annual membership fees. We will never turn a youth away because of finances.
