To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as caring, responsible and productive citizens.
Through all of our programs and activities, we instill the following values in all of our Members:
- BE FAIR
- BE WELL-SPOKEN
- BE HARD WORKING
- BE YOUR BEST
Provide a world-class Club Experience that assures success is within reach of every young person who walks through our doors, with all members on track to graduate from high school with a plan for the future, demonstrating good character and citizenship, and living a healthy lifestyle.
In every community, boys and girls are left to find their own recreation and companionship in the streets. An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision. Young people need to know that someone cares about them.
With the programs and positive influences we provide, the Boys and Girls Club is leading the way in youth development in Hopkinsville. Power Hour helps Club members be more successful in school by providing homework help and tutoring. SMART Moves helps young people resist alcohol, tobacco and other drug use. Meet & Greet connects our members with local professionals. Bud Hudson teaches the fundamentals of football, while instilling leadership and character in our young men. The Boys and Girls Club believes in the idea that within every child there is the potential for greatness.
The Boys & Girls Club is a safe place to learn and grow — all while having fun.
Who We Are
Club is more than a place, it is a “movement” to inspire. By reaching children at an early age and providing positive activities and encouragement, our Clubs provide a compelling alternative to youth crime, gang membership and other negative influences that effect our youth today.
Why We’re Different
Dedicated Youth Facility
The Boys & Girls Club is a place — an actual neighborhood-based building — designed solely for youth programs and activities.
The Club is open every day after school, when kids have free time and need positive, productive outlets.
The Club has trained youth development professionals, providing positive role models and mentors.
