Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee started in 1887 with two meeting rooms in the basement of a church. Today, it’s one of the largest Boys & Girls Clubs organizations in the country and has 44 locations throughout the city, including Legacy Clubs and Community Learning Centers.

  • Legacy Clubs are owned and operated by Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee.
  • Community Learning Centers (CLC) Clubs are operated at school sites and are made possible by a partnership with Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS). The partnership has allowed Boys & Girls Clubs to reach more youth without needing to purchase additional buildings.

Each type of Club provides the same safe learning and activities environments and adult mentors. However, CLC programming and hours may vary, so please select a Club location for more information.
