About the Clubs
Since 2001, Boys & Girls Clubs of Spokane County has provided thousands of young people, between the ages of 6-18 years old, with a safe, inclusive and positive place to go after school and throughout the summer; times during the year when kids are considered most at-risk.
Boys & Girls Clubs of Spokane County currently provides a wide range of services to more than 2,500 Club members a year, and as many as 600 members a day, at one of two neighborhood Club locations - our Northtown Club (Nev-Wood/Hillyard) and the Lisa Stiles-Gyllenhammer Club (Mead). Situated in the most disadvantaged neighborhoods, Clubs make a direct and positive impact on those communities, and ultimately future generations.
Our mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens. To do this, Boys & Girls Clubs of Spokane County has developed and implemented a sustainable, core program strategy known as the Clubs' "Formula For Impact," with a focus on three priority outcome areas: Academic Success, Good Character & Citizenship and Healthy Lifestyles.

About the Northtown Club
The Northtown Club is the organization's largest and oldest Club, having opened its doors in 2001 to kids, ages 6 - 18 years old. A large majority of the Club's membership comes from the surrounding Northeast Spokane community neighborhood. This magnet Club also houses the organization's youth sports program as well as the recently launched NSI: Neighborhood Science Investigation program. It is also a key partner and member of the Hillyard Youth Collaboration which makes it possible to open its doors on Saturday to members - a unique offer amongst most Clubs across the nation.
About the Lisa Stiles-Gyllenhammer Club
Dedicated to a beloved Shiloh Hills Elementary School teacher who lost a courageous battle with cancer, the Lisa Stiles-Gyllenhammer Club opened its doors to kids, ages 6 - 18, in 2010. Located in the old Mead Middle School, the Lisa Stiles-Gyllenhammer Club is the second largest Club serving hundreds of kids daily. Welcoming youth from all over North Spokane County, this Club offers the same great programs with one special difference - buses from many neighboring schools end their route at the Clubhouse and therefore transportation opportunities may exist for members.
