About Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada:

Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada (BGCC) provides after-school and out-of-school programs to children and youth that support the healthy physical, educational and social development of young people and their families. BGCC started in 1900 as the Every Day Club in Saint John, New Brunswick. In 1929 the Boys' Clubs of Canada was established to represent more than 30 member Clubs and in 1974 the name changed to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada. BGCC has grown into an association of over 98 Clubs located in 650 communities across Canada, in neighbourhoods where they are most needed, including large city centres, remote rural communities and First Nations Reserves.

BGCC has about 16,300 Community Volunteers and over 5,100 trained and dedicated full and part-time staff. The programs include physical activities, meals and snacks, academic support, skills and character development, and a chance to build positive relationships with peers and mentors. BGCC serves roughly 200,000 children and youth annually.

In February 2017, Boys and Girls Clubs America released an extensive program evaluation. External impact assessment shows a high impact SROI of 10:1. It is highly likely that some Canadian Boys and Girls Clubs have similar high impact but this is not possible to ascertain with current data reporting.
