About The Boys and Girls Club of Cleveland
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland (BGCC) is the local chapter of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA), which began as the Boys Club in Hartford, Connecticut in 1860. After that, the Boys Club movement quickly spread throughout the United States.
In 1954, the first Boys Club opened in Cleveland in the Slavic Village neighborhood on Broadway Avenue. It was established by a group of corporate executives from Republic Steel (ArcelorMittal) and Cliffs Natural Resources. The second Cleveland Club opened in the Mt. Pleasant Neighborhood in 1972.
In 1976, the Boys Clubs of Cleveland began to accept girls as members and became the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland. This progressive step occurred a full 14 years before the national organization became the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
In 1985, we opened our third Club, the West Side Club, followed by the King Kennedy Club in 1992 and the Heights Youth Club in 2007. In 2009, BGCC expanded into Cleveland schools and currently has sites in Charles Eliot, Harvey Rice, Walton and Bella Academy.
