Challenge

Our Clubs are located in economically distressed communities and 90% of the children and youth we serve live in households with incomes below the federal poverty level with difficult access to basic services, including quality education.

Solution

With 11 Clubs throughout the island located in the municipalities of San Juan, Carolina, Bayamon, Loiza, Mayaguez, Isabela, Arecibo, San Lorenzo, Vieques, and Aguas Buenas, we are currently the largest youth-serving organization in Puerto Rico and employ more than 300 professionals. BGCPR empowers Puerto Rican children from low-income communities to reach their full potential.

Long-Term Impact

Our strategic vision for the 2022-25 cycle is that, in three years, we will lead the national agenda to address the learning gap and children's social-emotional well-being. Our Educational Pillar has a variety of programs to address this vision.
