Activities for the Week

This is BGC! Let's kick off BGC Week and celebrate the moments that take place inside the doors of the Club. Join us for virtual tours and learn more about our 5,000 Clubs.

Let's see your BGC spirit! Sport a BGC pin on your blazer, shirt or just rock blue- let everyone know you are a proud BGC supporter. Share your photo and story online and tag BGCA.

Let's get outdoors! Getting out into the great outdoors helps children develop healthy habits and lay the groundwork for living a healthy life with balance mental and physical health practices.

Great futures are possible with BGC. Let's celebrate a world of future possibilities by learning more about career paths and opportunities from alumni, community partners and supporters.

Focusing on wellness, we will celebrate our BGC programs that celebrate healthy eating, mental health and healthy habits that nurture young people's well-being, help them set personal goals and grow into self-sufficient adults.
