Story and Mission F SPOTLIGHT: or more than 63 years, Boys & Girls Clubs of South Alabama has enabled young people, especially those who need us most, to achieve great futures as productive, caring, responsible citizens. Today, we serve nearly 4,200 young people through Club membership and community outreach. Clubs are located in schools, stand-alone facilities, public housing communities, and BGCSA-affiliated Youth Centers throughout Mobile and surrounding communities. During critical non-school hours, these clubs provide a safe place, with caring adult mentors, fun and friendship, and high impact youth development programs. Club programs promote academic success, good character and citizenship, and healthy lifestyles.
