Boys and Girls Club of America
Since 1991 the Boys and Girls Club of Lake Tahoe has been providing children and teens with a safe, positive and welcoming environment where they can have fun and enhance their education and life experiences. Donations are 100% the reason our doors stay open to the children of our community and every child should have that opportunity to achieve their full potential, how can you help?
The Boys and Girls Club of Lake Tahoe is affiliated with the Boys and Girls Club of America. Our Club follows the principles and guidelines of our parent organization; however our Club is managed and financed entirely separately from BGCA.
BGCA was conceived in Connecticut in the 1860s when local women started programs for young boys living in poverty and without positive influences and education in their lives. It became a nationwide movement in the 1906 and received Congressional Charter in 1956. Girls have long been an important part of the Clubs and the name was officially changed to recognize this in 1990.
