Programs for Kids

Every child and youth should have access to healthy relationships and enriching experiences that contribute to their future success. BGCBigs provides mentoring and after school programs that focus on healthy living, active play, belonging, leadership, friendship, and guidance.


With the help of over 3,000 volunteers, our staff of 120 is able to serve approximately 5,300 children and youth! Volunteers are the backbone of our organization and we simply could not serve our community without them. Volunteers can change the life of a child and the future of a community simply by spending quality time with a kid(s). Being a volunteer isn’t difficult or time consuming. It just requires you to care. You don’t have to change your life to become a volunteer with us; we help you find a way to fit a child into the life you’re already living.
