About Us

Over 26 Years of Successful Youth Development

From community stabilization to college and career readiness

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Dundee Township is one of the largest Boys & Girls Clubs organizations in the state of Illinois. We serve over 1,300 Club members throughout the year with afterschool programming, summer programs, and athletic leagues.

BGCDT operates in thirteen (13) Community Schools within District 300, 220, 15 along with a High School – Impact Center.

For only $25 a school year, our members receive homework help, tutoring, a daily snack and hot dinner, and participation in enrichment programs. These programs are in the core areas of education and career development, character and leadership, health and life skills, sports, fitness and recreation, and the arts. All of these services are provided in a safe and fun environment in which the children thrive.

BGCDT is a recognized 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

BGCDT celebrates 25 years of service to local at-risk children in 2022. Thank you to all of our friends, supporters, and investors for continuing to provide opportunities for so many at-risk Club members in our community…especially those that need us the most. 

Our Mission:

Our mission is to enable all kids to reach their full potential as productive, caring & responsible community members.
