Mission The mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of America is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible citizens.
Background The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Lowcountry (BGCLC) began in the mid-1980's when a group of Beaufort County residents came together to find a solution for the lack of structured, positive activities for the communities youth. In 1986 Boys Clubs of America (now Boys & Girls Clubs of America) granted an operating charter and the committee leased a city-owned facility in Beaufort and began offering programs. In the first few days of its opening more than twice the number of kids appeared at the Club than expected and the committee immediately leased another site within Beaufort Elementary School. In 1992, BGCLC opened a Club on Hilton Head Island in an apartment and in 1993 ground was broken to build the first Club in Beaufort. In 1998 BGCLC established the Bluffton Club in trailers next to MC Riley School. In 1999 the current Batten Family Club was built and opened its doors and in 2001 a Club was established in Ridgeland (Jasper County) in an elementary school. In 2003 the current Bluffton Club was completed and opened its doors to youth. In 2004 a small Club was opened in Sheldon using space in a county facility and in the summer of 2014 a Club was established in Shanklin Elementary School. Also in 2014 the Beaufort Club facility was sold to Bridges Preparatory Charter School with the Club offering after school programs within the school. Today the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Lowcountry consists of Clubs in Bridges Charter School, Bluffton, Hilton Head Island, Ridgeland (Jasper County), Sheldon and Shanklin Elementary School. In 2014 these Clubs served 2284 registered members.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Lowcountry (which includes The Boys & Girls Club of Hilton Head) seeks to provide a world-class Club experience for youth in each of our six Boys & Girls Clubs. We strive to ensure that success is within reach of every young person who walks through our doors, with all members on track to graduate from high school with a plan for the future, demonstrating good character and citizenship, and living a healthy lifestyle. Among our many programs and activities are:

Project Learn/Power Hour: an educational enhancement program.
SMART Moves: a program that helps young people learn to resist the use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs and postpone sexual activity.
Passport to Manhood: a program design to teach and promote responsible behaviors through teaching and role modeling in adolescent males.
SMART Girls: a program intended to help girls develop a healthy attitude and lifestyle and to help them acquire and maintain a positive self-image.
Torch Clubs: a service club for young teens.
Keystone Clubs: A service club for senior teens.
Reading Initiative: A early literacy program that targets first to third graders and uses tools such as the Lexia program, and literacy teachers to build their reading and comprehension skills.
We will touch the lives of more than 2300 young people ages 6-18 this year. Our goal is to be able to reach 4000 youth in the Lowcountry.

The Boys & Girls of the Lowcountry and our six Boys & Girls Clubs six  most pressing needs are:

Direct operating support in order to maintain and enhance our services to over 1000 who attend our six Club locations each day.
Dollars to enhance our staffing base so we can deliver direct program services to more youth who need us the most.
Capital Dollars: We own two facilities that are in need of continual maintenance. capital dollars will allow us to and properly plan to replace aging HVAC and other major building equipment items.
Support for our Early Literacy initiatives that include educational supplies, technology equipment and software licenses.
Scholarships to help reduce the program activity fees so we can offer more youth the wonderful opportunities the Club offers.
There are many ways to support our organization and donations can be unrestricted so we can use where we need them or restricted to a specific program that a donor has an interest in.
CEO/Executive Director Statement

As a 40 year Boys & Girls Club professional I am committed to ensure that the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Lowcountry continues to enhance and expand opportunities for the youth in the Lowcounty and that our Clubs have quality, trained, caring staff that offer a variety of targeted programs that have a positive impact on the lives of the youth we serve. I know that our Clubs provide experiences and opportunities to young people that will help them achieve success in three outcome areas:

Academic Success: that our members graduate from high school with a plan for college, military, trade school or a career.
Character & Citizenship: members treat others with dignity and respect, and they become engaged citizens who register to vote and give back to their community.
Healthy Lifestyles: members are committed to fitness and nutritious diets and avoid risky behaviors in favor of healthy lifestyle choices.
I am committed to improve the lives of the youth on our community and will work to hard develop partnerships to enhance our programs and services to these youth.
- Chris Protz, Chief Professional Officer
Board Chair Statement

"The need for the Boys & Girls Club in our community has never been more urgent. We face the challenge of reaching even more young people, and continue to deepen the impact we have on their lives. In order to meet this challenge we must consistently work to expand and improve the resources we provide to support the life-changing work performed by our staff. Continued support from our friends and partners is vital to our success.

Without the Clubs, many of our community's children would be unsupervised after school and in the summer. Some would go to bed hungry. Others would lack the academic support and role models they need to realize their potential. We know we are changing lives every day at the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Lowcountry.

- Russell Whiteford, Chief Volunteer Officer
