Join a Giving Club


At Boys & Girls Clubs, we know there is no simple answer to success. It takes a community of like-minded people, a safe environment, high-quality programs and unique experiences to enable our youth to reach great futures.

A Boys & Girls Club membership is so much more than you may realize – for just $10 an academic year, a Club membership gives kids a safe place to learn, grow and thrive. Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Iowa Club membership provides a child with:  

  • Environments that are safe, positive, and inclusive.

  • Relationships in which youth forge supportive, meaningful, and healthy connections with adults and peers.

  • Experiences that build upon their strengths, foster a sense of belonging and purpose, and provide opportunities to lead and be heard.

  • Life-enhancing programs that help youth advance in three key outcome areas: Academic Success, Good Character and Leadership, and Healthy Lifestyles.

Our Clubs are much more than a place to be after school and over the summer. It’s a place for youth to dance, express themselves, play sports, receive healthy meals and snacks every day, and get help solving a math problem or writing a resume. A place to learn, grow, lead and go further than they ever imagined.
