Since 1965, Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeast Louisiana has provided after school and summer enrichment opportunities for children and teens in the greater New Orleans metropolitan area. Boys & Girls Clubs are built on the belief that every child deserves a great future. Our mission is to inspire all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens. Our vision is for every Club member to be on track to graduate high school with a plan for the future, showing good character and citizenship and leading a healthy lifestyle. Today Boys & Girls Clubs serve over 1,300 young people annually at our Club sites in Covington, Gretna, New Orleans and Slidell. Clubs are open during the after school hours and in the summer to children and teens between the ages of 6 and 18. Clubs are staffed by full-time professionals who provide youth with programming in five core areas: Education/Career, The Arts, Health & Life Skills, Character & Leadership and Sports, Fitness & Recreation. Membership dues are kept low to ensure that all young people can afford to participate.
