Boys And Girls Clubs Of Middle Tennessee
Our Mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. This mission is accomplished through our after school, summer enrichment, and sports programs at nine separate Clubs in Davidson and Williamson County. In everything we do, our programs and activities instill in Club members four things: a sense of competence--they can do something and do it well; a sense of usefulness--whatever they are doing, it is of value and worthy of their time; a sense of belonging--each child feels they are special and are part of something significant; and a sense of power/influence--the knowledge that their voices will be heard and that they too can influence their environment.
