Educating & Protecting Children
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Durham and Orange Counties (BGCDOC) is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to educating and protecting children while preserving the beauty and innocence of childhood. We aim to make a fundamental difference in the lives of all youth, but especially those who need guidance the most by providing a safe alternative for youth between the ages of 6 and 18.
Serving 150 youth every day through our after-school program and over 300 youth during our summer camp and athletic programming.
Since 1939, BGCDOC has been a steadfast champion for youth by offering quality programming focused on life skills and academic achievements.
Charging no more than $10 per year, we give children the opportunity to learn and grow in a safe environment.
Inclusions & Opportunity
We strive to offer children and youth from all economic, cultural, and social backgrounds access to resources and opportunities that will enable them to overcome barriers and achieve their full potential in life.
Respect & Belonging
We provide a safe, supportive place, where every child is listened to, treated with respect, and valued in an environment of inclusion and acceptance. Our staff and volunteers model honesty, fair play, positive attitudes, cooperation, and respect for self and others.
We believe all young people can grow into responsible, contributing, and self-reliant members of society. Through adventure, play, and discovery, we encourage and empower Club members to develop healthy lifestyles, a life-long passion for learning, leadership and life skills, and a sense of social responsibility.
We work together with organizations and volunteers in each community, in partnership with businesses and local government entities, to create healthy community solutions for providing children and youth with what they need for optimal development.
We speak out on behalf of children, youth, and their families to reduce disadvantage, enhance their lives, and enable their voices and ideas to be heard.
