Back To Top



Founded in 1976, the Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows serves youth ages 6 to 18 in the greater Reno, Sparks and Fernley areas. What began as a single site organization serving a few dozen youth has grown into a 20-site organization serving more than 13,000 youth annually. The Club runs nearly 130 before/after school and school break programs, events and activities to meet the diverse needs and interests of their members. These fall under five core areas: Character & Leadership Development: These programs give members ample opportunity to serve their community and others as they realize they are part of something much bigger than themselves. Education & Career Development: Programs include daily afterschool homework help and tutoring as well as money management classes, college and career preparation, computer classes, science camps, reading clubs and much more. Health & Life Skills: The Club plays an important role in helping members make smart decisions about their health and lifestyle, from dealing with peer pressure to creating healthy eating habits. The Arts: The Club offers an array of arts programs that are as broad as members’ interests. Whether its music, fine arts, drama or dance, the art room is one of the most popular places at the Club. Sports, Fitness & Recreation: The Club offers formal leagues and camps as well as instructional and informal games in a variety of sports, plus plenty of time for cooperative games and informal play to get kids of all abilities up and moving.
