Since 2002, Boys & Girls Clubs of the Mississippi Delta (BGCMSD) has offered time-tested and proven programs to the youth of the Mississippi Delta with one goal:
“To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible citizens.”
BGCMSD operates 7 Club sites throughout the Delta in the following communities:
- Clarksdale Club
- Greenwood Club
- Grenada Club
- Itta Bena/MVSU Club
- Jonestown Club
- Lexington Club
- Yazoo City Club
Our Clubs serve nearly 2,000 youth with outreach programming that reached 3,000 young people, ages 6-18, in 2019.
Club Members participate in the 5 Core Program Areas outlined by Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA).
These 5 Core Program Areas are
- Education & Career Development,
- Character & Leadership Development,
- Health & Life Skills Development,
- Sports, Fitness, & Recreation, and
- The Arts.
Each program area comprises various age/gender-appropriate programs specifically developed to “grow” with the Club member as they grow through the Club each year.
Our organization focuses on five key areas to meet increased demands and have an even more profound impact on the future of our community’s youth – These areas are:
- Academic Success, and
- Healthy Lifestyles
If your community is interested in bringing the Boys & Girls Clubs opportunities to youth in your area, please get in touch with David Dallas, our CEO, to discuss the process and feasibility.
