Our Impact

Our mission is clear: to enable all kids to reach their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible community members. BGCDT annually serves over 1,500 Club members, serving members located in Algonquin, Barrington, Carpentersville, Lake in the Hills, Palatine, and Rolling Meadows. BGCDT is dedicated to providing a safe, supportive, and engaging environment where young minds can flourish.

Our comprehensive programs and services encompass a wide range of opportunities, from after-school programming and summer activities to athletic leagues and enrichment programs. We offer essential resources such as homework help, tutoring, nutritious meals, and character development activities in education, career readiness, leadership, health, sports, fitness, and the arts. We are more than just a safe haven; we are a catalyst for change, empowering the youth of Palatine and beyond to thrive and succeed. 

Your support and involvement are vital to our mission, and together, we can make a lasting difference in the lives of the children and young adults we serve.


“This Club is helping and developing the attitudes of these children to become the next generation of leaders, and I see that.”



“Boys & Girls Clubs has brought immeasurable joy and positive transformation to our elementary school. Through enhanced leadership, improved attendance, and stronger self-confidence, students thrive both in school and at the Club, fostering a culture of positivity. With supported homework time, new friendships, and access to diverse activities, Boys & Girls Clubs offers invaluable resources for students’ growth and success. Their collaboration with our school ensures the well-being and success of their members, creating lasting impacts and building character.”
