Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester (BGCD) is a leading youth development organization founded in 1974 to provide a safe haven and life-enhancing opportunities to the youth of Dorchester, Massachusetts. Our mission is to inspire and enable all young people, from diverse circumstances, to realize their full potential by providing opportunities for personal growth to become contributing, caring and responsible members of the community.
Inside our three clubhouses, young people find a safe and positive space, the guidance of caring staff, a wealth of new friends to be made, and a supportive environment in which they can discover and develop their unique talents and skills. Annual membership dues of just $5 ensure that every child has access to exceptional out-of-school time programming.
