To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
Club Kids Have Better Outcomes
For over 50 years, Don Moyer Boys & Girls Club has changed and saved young lives during the out-of-school time. We want every child in Champaign County to be in a safe, constructive environment when they are not at home or in school.
Clubs Help Kids Lead Healthy Lifestyles and Avoid Risky Behaviors
Our Club plays an important role in providing a safe space to exercise, compete in team sports and establish lifelong friendships. Teens who stay involved in the Club are more likely than their peers to have healthy habits, including being physically active and abstaining from risky behaviors like drinking alcohol, smoking and using marijuana.
Clubs Help Teens Graduate from High School Prepared for a Great Future
Each year, 1 out of 6 students fails to graduate from high school on time. Ensuring that every Club member graduates from high school on time with a solid plan for their future is of the highest priority for DMBGC. Our Club offers homework help, tutoring, educational enrichment and college preparation programs designed to support young people’s academic achievement.
