Club Expansion

The Minnesota Alliance of Boys & Girls Clubs is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing a safe place for all boys and girls to learn, grow and thrive. With a $5 million grant from the Minnesota Department of Education, we are working to expand Boys and Girls Clubs to more communities in Minnesota to support after-school and summer programs that address learning loss.

Programming for Indigenous Youth

Boys & Girls Clubs in Minnesota are the largest provider of out-of-school-time programming to Indigenous Youth. With Clubs on or near four Minnesota Native American reservations, and two Indigenous-specific sites in Minneapolis, culturally-appropriate programs like T.R.A.I.L and other community-lead initiatives help prepare Indgenous youth for their great future.
