What We Do
Every single kid needs hope for what the future holds…
For over 75 years, Boys & Girls Clubs of Calgary has carried on a tradition of helping young people to discover, develop and achieve their full potential as adults, citizens and leaders by engaging them in activities that challenge and enrich their minds, bodies and spirits and nurture their self-esteem.
