BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS OF MARYLAND
Boys & Girls Clubs of Maryland (BGCMD) consists of nine independent Boys & Girls Club organizations statewide. Local Clubs across Maryland, as well as Clubs on U.S. Military Installations in Maryland play a critical role in meeting the unique needs of families in their own communities through mentoring and trauma-informed programming.
We know we are stronger when we work together to connect our communities. BGCMD is poised to strengthen Clubs across Maryland, acting as a needed resource to enable all young people in our state, especially those who need us most, reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
In response to the increased needs of Maryland youth impacted by the devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and historical inequities further exposed throughout the pandemic, Boys & Girls Clubs are expanding with a goal to reach every county in the State, ultimately serving 45,000 children across all jurisdictions.
Our Collective Mission
Boys & Girls Clubs of Maryland is a relentless champion for children across the entire state, doing whatever it takes to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
We are a coalition of independent Boys & Girls Clubs committed to collaboration that will ultimately strengthen our shared brands, secure large-scale financial support, and identify ways to serve more young people in Maryland.
Project Bounce Back
Project Bounce Back is $25 million first-in-the-nation public-private partnership to help Maryland youth recover from the devastating impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. This series of initiatives will provide strategic mental health services, expand the footprint of youth development programs, and develop an innovative, data-driven digital solution to build post-COVID resilience among Maryland’s youth, families, and communities. Project Bounce Back has provided the incredible foundation to expand our reach to every county in Maryland, prioritizing Title 1 school districts and rural communities, to reach 45,000 children across all jurisdictions with youth development programs and positive mentorship.
