Fulfilling America's Promise to Our Youth
Research shows that the largest, single predictor of a child’s future success is the presence of at least one non-parent adult in their life. With a new campus in East Austin and 34 satellite locations, Austin's Boys & Girls Clubs are serving thousands of youth, regardless race, gender, religion or socioeconomic status. Through their high-quality programming, they are cultivating the next generation of community leaders.
