WHAT IS THE BOYS & GIRLS CLUB
Boys & Girls Clubs of Indian River County have been a cornerstone of the community since opening their doors in 2000. Serving over 1,500 youth, Boys & Girls Clubs of Indian River County provide a safe, structured and positive environment for young people after school, during holidays and on summer vacation. Boys & Girls Clubs are a safe place to learn and grow -- all while having fun. It is truly The Positive Place For Kids.
Boys & Girls Clubs of Indian River County have club locations in Vero Beach, Sebastian and Fellsmere. They strive to develop confident children by providing after-school programs focusing on character & leadership, education & career development, health & life skills, the arts, and fitness & recreation.
DID YOU KNOW…
During the school year, we are open weekdays from 2:00-6:30 p.m., the time when we are needed most. Studies show that during this time, the rate of juvenile-related crime more than doubles.
During the summer months, we provide summer camp activities from 7:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. to more than 500 children in our area

VOLUNTEERS AND DONORS NEEDED
If not for their involvement with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Indian River County, many of the 1,500 children we serve annually would have nowhere to go every day after school and all day during the summer. Their programs and services would not be possible without the generosity and caring support of donors, volunteers and partners. There are many ways you can make a difference. Please call their office at (772) 299-7449 for more information.
