About

Achieve Your Clubs Potential

Boys and Girls Clubs Scotland has been at the forefront of working with young people in Scotland since 1928. Boys and Girls Clubs Scotland helps young people to achieve their potential through social and personal development opportunities. We provide support to our network of members, as well as deliver a national programme of initiatives.

Creating Opportunity For Clubs In Scotland

Through our clubs and our central activities, we provide the necessary opportunities, support, skills and positive role models, which help young people in their journey towards becoming healthy and confident adults.  The focus of many of our member clubs is on sport and physical activity and, as an organisation, we are committed to providing exciting opportunities to engage young people in learning new skills, whilst increasing their physical health.

Social & Community Involvement

There is strong evidence that in communities where a Boys and Girls Clubs Scotland are active, there are lower levels of youth crime and vandalism. Our clubs operate across Scotland, ranging from the most deprived urban areas to remote rural communities. Approximately 10,000 young people access clubs, part of the Boys and Girls Clubs Scotland network, each week.
