• Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern IL Kick Off Community Giving Campaign

    May 19, 2020
    During these unprecedented times, the youth of BGCSI need us more than ever.  May 5th is the kickoff for the Annual Campaign to Imagine the Possibilities for all our youth.  Your investment in BGCSI provides members programs such as Mentoring, Academic Support, Healthy Meals, Summer Learning, Workforce Education, STEM Programming, Social and Emotional Supports, Conflict Resolution, Passport to Manhood & SMART Girls, Health and Wellness, and so much more!

    By imagining the possibilities, your gift helps ensure long-term sustainability of programs and services, allowing us to serve as a beacon of hope, stability, and opportunity to those who need us most.  It costs BGCSI $358.20 to support one Club member for a year. 

    There will be more challenges for our youth when things begin to open, and our Blue Doors swing open to greet them.   Learning loss, anxiety and fears impacting their emotional health, isolation that may have led to undisclosed abuse and neglect, social isolation and confusion as to what behaviors are acceptable and not acceptable after this pandemic.  We are asking those who can to help support one youth for a year.  For less than $30.00 per month one youth has the opportunity for mentoring, academic support, emotional support, healthy meals, workforce education, life skills training.  We are ‘Doing Whatever It Takes’ to build better futures and are excited to have the community support the kids as we continue to be the constant in the lives of our youth.

    Imagine the possibilities and make a difference for a Club youth.  Help us reach our goal of supporting 112 youth.
