Facts About the Boys and Girls Club of Brantford

More than fourty years ago, dedicated and visionary members of the Rotary Club of Brantford recognized the need for quality program and recreation opportunities for children and youth and opened Brantford's very first "Boys Club" in the downtown core.  The Boys & Girls Club of Brantford now serves hundreds of children and youth from across the city and operates in multiple locations to better meet the needs of families in  diverse neighbourhoods.

Boys & Girls Club of Brantford has grown into one of Brantford's most established and effective youth service orgnanizations and looks forward to continuing to enhance our capacity to serve the community and meet neighbourhood needs.  We are proud of our history of leveling the playing field and providing opportunities for children and youth to reach their full potential in life, by supporting their healthy physical, educational and social development.
