About the Boys & Girls Clubs

Formed in 2019 by the merger of Boys and Girls Club (BGC) of Taunton and BGC of Brockton, the Metro South chapter of the BGC is an important facet of the local community.

BGC Metro South stands by their mission “to nurture strong minds, healthy bodies, and community spirit through youth-driven, high-impact, programs in safe and fun environments.”

One of the core aspects of BCG South Metro is its “open door” policy. Its members are welcome to stop by the club as many times as they’d like, whether that’s once a week or once a day. The Metro South chapter uses a combination of national Boys and Girls Clubs of America programs and homegrown events specifically designed to suit the needs of its members.

Available Programs

There are plenty of programs and events for children and teens of all ages. From academic help to creative expression, there’s something for everyone and every interest.

Academic Success

These programs help to give children and teens the skills and resources needed to succeed in the classroom and consist of tutoring, career exploration, financial literacy and more. The Learning Center at the Clubhouse provides an enriching environment in which to learn.

Creative Expression

Through music and performance production, creative writing, graphic design, and more, members are encouraged to develop their creativity and appreciation of the arts. These classes are held in the Brockton Studio Clubhouse which is complete with a full recording studio.

Sports & Recreation

BGC’s sports and recreation programs aim to not only keep members active but promote a positive use of leisure time. They offer several club and travel sports leagues including soccer, hockey, basketball, and soccer. An aquatics center is also available for members to partake in water activities and safety courses.
